“The Zofnass Preserve is a six-mile perimeter route with 3 main sections connected by a center "hub."”— Rob Cummings
This is a great trail for anyone "directionally challenged" as maps present themselves at the major trail junctions and at points of interest. The maps are very detailed and highlight the variety of interesting sights along the trail.
This hike incorporate the Zofnass Southern Loop, Zofnass Eastern Loop, the Zofnass Northern Loop , and the Central Roundabout.
The Zofnass Southern Loop features the longest loop in the preserve with the most variety in terrain. This trail features lots of switchbacks and very well maintained trail sections, and there are also many geologic and natural features pointed out here, mostly on the ridgeline part of the trail.
The Zofnass Northern Loop has some nice climbs with one significant climb and many short ups and downs. The Zofnass Eastern Loop is a mostly easy loop that goes around a marshy area. These loops are all connected by the Central Roundabout giving you a variety of options for mixing up your hike.
