Cool hike with the kids. Didn’t do the peak. Next time.

Squaw Peak Drive dead ends at a cul--de-sac that we used as the starting off point for this hike. From the parking lot you head north on trail #304 until you reach trail #8B. 8B is a beast and goes straight up the mountain. There is a lot of loose shale on the trail so I recommend hiking poles. You can take a break at the bench up on the saddle and enjoy the views. But don't be tempted to turn off on one of the side trails. Go down the other side of the mountain until you reach the intersection of trail #8b and #8a. Stay to the right and take #8A down the mountain. If you follow the #8A trail all the way down the mountain you will end up at the 32nd St & Lincoln Dr. Trailhead. But to finish this loop you want the 202 trail. Note - I believe the 202 trail was previously called the 200A trail. The 202 takes you over a pair of ridges before you make your way back to the trailhead. While it's only three miles, this is both a challenging and scenic hike. Watch your footing and enjoy!

I loved this hike. We started in the morning, and the views were really spectacular. I would recommend this one to others for its diversity and nice range of inclines and descends.

Did Ruth Hamilton 8B and 304 yesterday. Good hike. The 8B can be a little bit tricky. It was just 2 1/2 miles, so not that long, but good anyway. Mostly uphill
