Park Road Descriptions

Baker Creek Road

Snake Creek Road
Closed (dirt road)

Strawberry Creek Road
Temporarily Closed, downed trees (dirt road)

Lexington Arch Road
Open to 2.5miles from the Arch (unimproved dirt road)

(NOTE: The unimproved dirt road to Lexington Arch is rough and rutted. High-clearance, four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended. Due to damage sustained by wildfire, the Lexington Arch road is severely washed out. Vehicles will have to park approximately 1 mile before the official parking area/trailhead begins as a result. Drive as far as you feel comfortable and then walk the rest of the way. There is not a designated parking area. Do not block the road or damage vegetation when parking. Look for orange trail markers on trees to guide you towards the trailhead through the washout. (10/10/2019)

Hiking Trails

Hiking Trail Information

Weather can change quickly at any elevation, so be prepared for harsh conditions. When hiking at high elevation be prepared for rain, hail, or snow storms at any time of the year. Temperatures and visibility can drop rapidly.

Most trails are at high elevation and have steep climbs. Be mindful for signs of altitude sickness such as headache and nausea. If you're feeling sick, descend right away. Sun exposure is also more extreme at high elevation, so be sure to bring hats and sunscreen. Bring plenty of water and salty snacks for longer day hikes.

Please use the trail registers to document your hikes.
