It was a very easy hike. After this hike, I hiked up the Chief Mountain summit. There was not enough snow to snowshoe. I just used some traction devices.

It was a beautiful and easy hike. Very windy, though...

In true fashion, there were a lot of fellow explorers out today! Had fun with the friends but the trail was chopped up and a bit icy. Can't wait to return this summer and head up to the lakes.

My daughter (11) and I walked the trail from the beginning into town and my wife picked us up. Nice scenery all the way and the trail was well marked. Not too steep - just right.

Templeton Trail

I really liked this hike! I'm here visiting so I wasn't very familiar with the trail heads so I found some good directions on another site. I chose to start at the Yucca Flats trailhead. Follow the paved park road passed the athletic fields. The road is narrow and winds back and forth. About a mile back, the road will split. Take the gravel road to the right (you'll see a blue sign that reads "Lazy Land") and follow it to the dead end. This trail intersects with others (Mesa, Yucca) so I'm not certain I stayed on Templeton the entire time. The trail was sometimes hard to follow and many of the plates that mark the trails are missing. Nonetheless, it was gorgeous and I always found my way. It was a warm winter day (60 degrees!) so I thought I'd see more people out there. In the beginning yes, but once I found my way to Templeton, I only saw three couples during my two hour hike. The views were stunning and scenery changed often. Sometimes under trees, other times surrounded by rock formations, and occasionally walking in fields of high grass. If you go in winter, expect some slick spots and mud from snow on the ground. If you haven't already, I'd put this one on your must-see list!

Easy hike with great scenery. Fairly busy on a Saturday mid day in February, but still had plenty of solitude between groups. We hiked it in boots with micro spikes (yaktrax) which was sufficient. Saw plain boots, snowshoes, Nordic skis, and bikes out too. Highly recommended!

Amazing hike. Went to day, wore my ice trekkers and needed them in just spots but still some deep snow. Wasn't crowded and you cannot beat the views from the top. 360 and amazing
