Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildflowers

The park is open year-round to hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. It is closed at all times to motorized vehicles and hunting.

Need to Know

The trails here are well used and mostly easy, but be aware of the possibility of slips and falls in wet conditions. It's best to stay on the trails to avoid ticks, poison oak, and rattlesnakes. Be careful of these if you let your dog off-leash. There is cell phone coverage. There is no drinking water available in the park.

Description

You can reach this loop most directly from the Sky Crest Trailhead via either the Timber Riders or Skycrest Trails. For a longer hike, you can reach it from the Espey Trailhead via the Outback Loop. Where the Outback Trail doubles back on itself in the northeast corner of the park, take the Timber Riders and Sky Crest Trails for a short distance to the start of the Skycrest Loop Trail. This trail takes you around an unnamed peaklet through some ponderosa pines and past points where you can look south toward Bolt Mountain (where you'll find the Bolt Mountain Trail) and north toward downtown Grants Pass.

Flora & Fauna

Expect wildflowers along the trail in the spring.
