Norse Peak

Norse Peak Professional Review and Guide

"Hike here in summer, and you’ll want to pack several quarts of water, then toss in two more once you’ve got all you think you’ll need. This trail climbs steeply on sun-parched slopes, and you and your dog are going to need a lot of water to stay hydrated and healthy. And you’ll want to be healthy and feeling good, because the scenery you encounter on this short trail will be something you want to see and remember for a long time.

The acres of wildflowers on all sides will capture your attention, and when you tire of the rainbow of colors on the ground, you’ll find new, breathtaking vistas around every corner. Herds of elk frequent the meadows on the slopes to Norse Peak, and mountain goats dance and prance around the rocks at the ridgetop. Hawks and golden eagles soar overhead, and small snakes and alligator lizards live on the sun-heated slopes underfoot. Keep your dog under control so she doesn’t get excited and chase any of these critters."
