|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
The trail is well marked with almost no chance of getting lost. This is an out and back trail. The trail from the campground parking lot is about 2.2 miles to the entrance of the Observatory. Walk through the parking lot to the marked sidewalk to the observatory. The GPS route includes a walk around the observatory. It is worth your while to go inside and see the telescope and the displays. There are bathrooms in the observatory open to the public. There is also a picnic area off the parking lot.
I enjoyed this trail as it is hard enough to be a work out but is not strenous by any means.
The beginning of the trail has views of a great valley that is very beautiful.
