We had a wonderful hike. It was comfortable August morning and could not have thought of a better place to be. I went up the Skyline trail and returned on the old CCC trail. It was a nice loop.

This paved road goes from the camping area and climbs to the summit of the mountain to the southeast. It has a couple of switchbacks, and yet not intimidating. There are several pullouts that offer great views of the surrounding area. Near the end are several picnic tables.

The Headquarters Trail is parallel the the entrance road from the state park entrance to first wildlife viewing area. There is very little grade change, and not that rocky.

Did this trail from east to west. The sign says there is a 289' elevation change The trail has some very rocky places, and is overgrown. The views are OK, but not that great You can cut off about .5 mile if you access the trail from the toilet building east of the end of Skyline Drive

Preparing for an upcoming group trek, I backpacked the 4 mile trail (1-way) that starts in the equestrian area, across from park HQ. This 4 mile trail increases in elevation from 5000 to 5900' and has some fairly challenging areas. We hiked it with our dogs in August, so it was hot, but bearable with appropriate rest stops. There was a nice breeze for most of the hike. We camped at the primitive campsite indicated on the current park map, but the trail continues on past that point. After setting camp at a peak overlooking the parking area, we day hiked further along the trail. With packs and dogs in August heat, the hike up took about 4-1/2 hours. The trek back down took 2 hours. There is no water up on the mountain, so length of stay is limited by how many days' water supply you are able to tote. We were fortunate in that it rained and we were able to harvest rainwater. An excellent hike with beautiful vistas, I will be taking a group of women back in late September of 2014.
