Features Views

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 trail heads. Some have chemical toilets but most have no amenities beyond a parking space.

Very useful paper trails maps are sometimes available at the parking area kiosks but can also be obtained online.

Description

This signed trail leaves the Siskiyou Trail above Parking Area 2 and shortly before its junction with the Pipsissewa Trail. The view trail climbs to a viewpoint (with bench) just below Point 2783. On a clear day—and if the sun angle is favorable—you can see the Siskiyou Crest many miles to the south.

The trail is a loop where the right-hand loop is steeper and shorter, while the left-hand-loop is gentler and longer. The trail climbs a north slope which can provide cool, welcome shade on a hot day.

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.
