Lovely scenery with lots of wildlife! Hike was nice and easy!
The Parmalee loop is a very popular hike in the Mount Falcon area, boasting moderate elevation change and diverse scenery. Excellent bird's eye views of the 285 canyon make this a must hike trail for most skill levels. The trail heads are located near the restrooms at the west parking lot and about the middle of the Meadows trail. A majority of the wildlife congregates in the western portion of the trail. You are likely to come across entire herds of deer that seem not to be concerned with the presence of people.

Beautiful and easy hike. It is not well marked in a couple areas but you should have cell service to find your way.
Loved this hike! There was plenty of sun and shade, and plenty of uphill and downhill. It seemed like the perfect fall day hike! And the Tower had amazing views!
Breathtaking beautiful. The smell of pine trees and I saw a deer!
I would consider it a moderate trail since the last 2 miles are uphill. otherwise the beginning is really easy! Definitely pay attention to the signage. Really good workout!
Quite nice! Not difficult and all the people we passed were very friendly which made for a nice day. We took our dog and she too enjoyed it! The views were great although the signage was a little interesting. The map at the start helped a lot and I would recommend grabbing one as you depart as there are some turns ou need to take.
