Peaks View Day Use Area to Bear Gulch Day Use Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a nice snapshot of the lush Bear Gulch area via the sweetest mile of trail in the park. There’s something enchanting about hiking up this narrow gulch laced with six wooden footbridges across seasonal Bear Gulch Creek, which is lined with buckeyes, sycamores, and oaks. Ferns, cattails, clump grass–like sedges, cascades, and a waterfall are some of the seasonal centerpieces.
Peaks View Day Use Area welcomes you with a strategically located bench to absorb the view of the High Peaks on the horizon and an educational panel about the relationship between condors and the Pinnacles. This is a perfect spot for admiring the unique ancient geological formation where condors nest and roost once again."
