I did the mountain lion trail to windy point and then came back on burro trail. It’s a nice hike but seeing the poster of mountain lions being active in the area made me look around a lot and carry a big walking stick. One section of the trail goes along a stream with big rock formations. The trail up to windy point goes through evergreen trees without a view till the top and is steep in sections Returning down the burro trail, the views were nice. I ended up cutting across a field to the service road and finding mountain lion trail back to the parking lot. It was a moderate hike with some easy sections and some slightly more difficult.

Highly recommend for a quick morning hike. Took me about 2 hours although I did stop to take photos along the way. There’s snow in some places but overall the trail is in good shape right now. Panorama point is a beautiful lookout spot. Trail strenuous in some places but overall pretty relaxing.

love this trail

Just strenuous enough and fabulous views await at the top. Great for doggie companions, too!

Hiked just part of the trail with my mom before cutting back to the road towards our car. Great views, chilly outside of the trees in late November.

This was great hike with lots of different scenery. Went in November when the weather was unusually warm and didn’t run into many people on the trail.
