Did about 2/3 of the loop then cut in around the lake to head up a gulley of boulders and around to go to top of rock. The loop is easy, rocks get a lot more challenging. When we went in to the park they told us trail to top was closed because of rain (makes slippery rocks!) but most people were still going up, it had dried quite a bit by the time we got there. Beautiful scenery!

An excellent trail with diverse views and terrain. Not too heavily trafficked so plenty of wildlife. The shade and breeze make it a good option in the summer. Suitable for families.

stayed at the campground for several days and hiked the Summit Trail many times. loved this trail, Echo Canyon and Turkey Pass. One picture posted here has a man standing in the grass in one of the vernal pools at the summit taking a picture of the pool. Please don't do that. That compacts what little dirt there is and damages/destroys the root system of the vegetation.
