Join us for Babler's first hike of the year. We will be hiking the Hawthorn Trail, located across from the Alta Shelter. Hawthorn Trail is approximately 1 ¼ miles long, making it the park's shortest trail. However, it contains a diversity of geology found nowhere else in the park.
A short distance from the trailhead before the loop begins, Hawthorn crosses the Equestrian Trail. Continuing straight past the intersection, it goes along the northeast side of a narrow ridge and returns on the southwestern side.
There will be refreshments on hand at the Alta Shelter.
