The park is closed from the hour after sundown to the hour before sunrise.

The SE portion of this trail crosses into State Trust Land managed as part of a State Wildlife Area. Per CPW rules, a valid hunting or fishing license OR SWA pass is required for everyone 16 or older accessing any state wildlife area.

Description

From the trailhead, take the Sleepy S Trail until it turns into the Meadow View Trail. There will be a junction with the Bergen Peak Trail about a mile from where Sleepy S Trail turns to Meadow View.

Take the left-hand turn and begin the climb to the top of Bergen Peak. Though technical and steep, the view at the peak of this trail is unbeatable, as there are 360-degree views of Squaw Peak, Three Sisters and all the way out to the plains.

Flora & Fauna

It isn't uncommon to see elk, deer and various hawks on this trail. Be aware during dawn/dusk hours that mountain lions have been sighted in the area.

Early spring on the trail. Since the trail is mostly on the north face, this trail can stay cold for a while.
