Dogs: Leashed

Description

This mostly flat trail originates at a junction with Wildcat Canyon Trail, about a mile from the trailhead. This is one of the park's lesser used trails, but given its tame nature, it makes for a great family hike.

The trail heads due south for just over a mile from its junction with Wildcat Canyon Trail and passes through open grasslands and pinyon-juniper. The Northgate Peaks Trail ends between the east and west Northgate Peaks. From here, you'll have great views of the North Guardian Angel, a large sandstone formation that juts up from the surrounding landscape.

There are multiple trails heading up either of the Northgate Peaks if you're looking for a scramble to a better view. It should be noted that these approaches are not sanctioned park trails - please be considerate of your surroundings and stick to defined paths to avoid trampling delicate desert fauna.
