There’s an awful lot to see here, although the trail mileage may look low to some. You’ll find expansive meadows full of wildflowers, berries, and possibly big black-tailed deer. You’ll be able to visit a beautiful mountain lake, and climb a stunning peak to panoramic views. And you’ll explore some glorious ancient forests. All within a couple miles’ radius.
