Grizzly Peak

Visible from almost everywhere in town, Grizzly Peak offers great views of the valley. During spring and early summer, wildflowers are plentiful along the trail. Make sure to do the entire loop trail while visiting Grizzly Peak. Going just to the summit and back bypasses most of the views this hike has to offer!

Distance/Elevation

5.4 miles round trip & 679ft elevation gain

Terrain

Grizzly Peak Pic

The trail traverses and switchbacks up from the parking lot through woods and meadows. After 1.1 miles, the loop trail begins. The summit of Grizzly Peak is to the right but the best views are found at the apex of the loop! The trail takes a tour through a burnt section of forest. Walking through this portion of trail really illustrates fire ecology as the forest works to rebuild itself.

Directions & Map

Recommended Equipment

Food & Water

For water, 2L-3L per person for a day trip is recommended. As for food, several small snacks throughout the day are recommended. Big meals are fun but bog you down. Small snacks allow for a continual flow of energy to your body. For your snacks, try to balance sugars, fats, proteins, and carbs so your body is continually fueled. This helps reduce crashes in energy during the day.
