Pinnacle Peak County Park: Cal Magnusson Trail

My husband and I have a deal. If we can do the North side 2xs in a row, we've earned Wally's on the way home. :^)) Great hike. Can get a little crowded in the Spring/Summer and a little slick in the Fall/Winter.

My go-to hike.
Close to home. Short. Reliable.
My new favorite is to start up from the backside and down to the frontside parking lot and back. 5.3 miles total. Backside for the family, front side for a workout.
The trail to the right out of the front-side parking lot is the more challenging route. Interconnecting trails everywhere provide varied routes each time I hike it.

a nice stroll through the wood. there are a few nice peek a boo views in the clearings, but don't expect any grand views. many muddy spots makes crossing log bridges a bit tricky. the washed out cliffs are quite the sight. if you do the entire trail, it is broken up near mile 3 by a ravine. it's not hard to figure out how to get back on trail, but is not well marked either. logging road parallels the trail and highway so we were not concerned about going off trail.

Great, well-maintained trail. Hiked mid-week and passed about 10 other hikers and 4 other dogs. Beautiful waterfalls and scenic overlooks.

Greenwater and Echo Lakes Trail

The hike to Echo was a good one. It had some good elevation gain that was giving me a good run with my pack on through the snow. After balancing over falling trees where the washed out bridge was just after Greenwater Lakes, I hiked a few miles and decided to go to Echo instead of Lost Lake so i turned left and continued the ascent. Pretty views of water and forest are abundant. I hit a lot of snow in the shaded spots and it made for a hell of a time walking. It was definitely a nice lake when i arrived. I don't fish but i hear it's a great fishing spot from my buddies. Maybe ill bring a pole next time i'm up and give it a try again.

This was our first hike of the year and just wanted to get out and get some fresh air. We had never been on this hike and didn't expect anyone else to be there as it was forecast to rain continuously all day (which it did). Much to our surprise there were six other groups that were there throughout the hike as well. The continuous rain and wind was not an issue as they were mitigated by the woods of the majority of the hike. I had read from past reviews that some people found the trail confusing from the lack of markers along it. Fortunately for us, one of the parties that arrived at the same time as us were veterans of the hike and filled us in on the particulars of the trail. The trailhead we used started just outside the official entrance to the Mud Mountain Dam park area (the actual park was closed with its road gates locked) and had an unofficial/unmarked parking area to the left that would hold half a dozen cars. This hike started with an immediate decision to go right or left. To the right the trail parallels the park entrance road and leads to a view of the dam which isn't very far (we were told and didn't go that way) . To the left is the actual rim trail. For all the direction decisions that must be made, staying to the right works well. After about .5 miles you come to an intersection of sorts and veer right onto a road like section. A trail marker on the left points you to a trail through the woods while staying on the road like section will take you to the same endpoint. At this endpoint a yellow outhouse can be seen and the continuation of the trail is behind it. After following this section of the trail (passing a bench with a view of a stream coming down the other side of the valley wall) you will arrive at an intersection of roads. Following the road to the right will take you down to the river. This was an easy and enjoyable hike to just be outdoors and get some exercise.

Norse Peak Trail

Long but beautiful hike. Made it to the peak and got to see some white goats. The view from the top was worth the hike. I might consider backpacking if I do this one again and spend more time hiking down to the lake.

saw tons of horses towards the end of our hike while exploring this trail today. got on the trail at about 930 am and didn't see anyone until we headed back to the car at 1200. they're were a few routes on this trail so we weren't sure where the real trail was. nice and easy and peaceful hike. we did a few lips and went down each path but ultimately found the trail. never saw the dam though.
