Description

Driving into the park you'll see a campground area with a parking lot. Park there and then look across the street to find the Baseline trailhead. Follow the Baseline Spur to access the main loop. There's also a side loop (Baseline Viewpoint Loop) if you'd like to tack on some extra milage and check out the view. If not, follow Baseline Spur all the way to Baseline Trail.

Follow the trail to the peaks and then follow the ridge of the mountains left and then head back down. The trail is pretty well marked, so finding your way should be easy. Once you complete the loop, head back down Baseline Spur to get back to the trailhead.
