Beautiful spot and amazing views. Great for kids. You do have to pay $6 to get in. It is not a big deal, but we were not expecting to pay anything. I would recommend going here though I will be going again.
Confusing to get to. Not hard or challenging at all. Not much to write about. We did see a mule deer. That was the most exciting part. :)
Great views and enjoyable trail for us beginners.
Easy, pretty, decent for getting back into hiking after time being a lazy slob ;) I got to the trailhead at 8 and took my pup. Took us an hour to make the hike with frequent stops to let him cool down a bit. Blevins trail was HOT because there was no breeze. I turned left a the Cats Peak fork and when you get to the north side of the north mountain a nice breeze hits and cooled it down. Getting back on Blevins to the car was easy but hot without the breeze again. If I did it again in October, I'd leave the trailhead by 7 at the latest to avoid the heat.
Cat Peaks via Pass Mountain from the end of Meridian. The Cat Peaks loop is very easy - saw many mountain bikers.
Good trail at sunset you may get to see the Great Horned Owls
