Hiking

Berries in season? The best ones are beyond the first lookout (1.9 miles) on the summit ledges at 2.2 miles.

From the trailhead you won’t be on the level for very long before the trail starts a serious ascent to high country.

The trail sweeps around a couple unnamed little knobs before making a final push to the first viewing point at 1.6 miles. Just past here there is another view to the right at 1.8 miles and then an intersection with the Blueberry Cobbles Cut-off Trail on the right. Bear left and continue slightly uphill to blueberry heaven and some additional nice views. The trail continues over the top of Blueberry Cobbles and eventually to Rocky Peak Ridge.

Snowshoeing

This is a good trail for learning how to summit with snowshoes.

  • For an easy hike, there's rugged vistas rising from the valley.
  • Wonderful views on a hike most of the family can enjoy.
  • Look for the trailhead sign for parking and distance. Be sure to sign the trail register!
  • Fall is a great time for hiking and adds color to the views.
