Features Fall Colors

The trails are open year-round but can get muddy (or snowy) in places during the winter.

The trails are used by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, so please observe proper trail etiquette. A few trails are reserved for mountain biking (these are usually signed as such), so please don’t hike on these.

There are no potable water sources in the park or along the trails – be sure to bring plenty of your own.

Need to Know

There are no fees to use this park. There are 7 designated parking areas throughout the park, each with room for 5 to 12 cars. They are located near clusters of trailheads. Some have chemical toilets but most have no amenities beyond a parking space. Very useful paper trail maps are sometimes available at the parking area kiosks but can also be obtained online.

Description

The Legburner Trail leaves Sofie's Trail about 0.5 miles from Jackson Creek, makes a gentle climb to the Jackson Ridge Trail, and then descends steeply from there to end at a junction with the Claimjumper Trail, just 0.1 miles from Parking Area P-7. If you climb it from P-7 to Jackson Ridge, you'll understand where "legburner" came from. This trail is useful for creating loops over and around Jackson Ridge.

Flora & Fauna

Watch out for ticks in the spring, rattlesnakes (rare) in the warmer months, and poison oak all year-round. Consider these nuisances if you let your dog off-leash.
