Round the Mountain Hike

Description: This classic loop provides views in all directions as we circle the Park’s dominant peak via Deer Flat, Prospector’s Gap and Oak Knoll. Parts of this hike will pass through burn areas of the September 2013 Morgan Fire. Late spring wildflowers should still be abundant on parts of the route. Allow 7 hours for this 8.5 mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 2300 feet. Steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Bring layered clothing and plenty of water. Be prepared for poison oak. This hike will be shortened in case of extreme heat.
