A trail with varied terrain and great views of the area.

Dustin Brown

Overview

The Roman Nose State Park offers many great views, especially in the fall and spring. The terrain is rocky, yet very lush with trees, cactus and grass. The park can be a hot spot on the weekends and vacation times. The park is also host to a golf course and a lodge with a restaurant.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Lake — River/Creek — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Runner Notes

Watch for large rocks, uneven ground (at times) and cactus, native to this area.

Description

The trailhead is near the parking lot at the resort and is clearly marked, however, the signs can become confusing. Begin on the Lodge Trail, quickly coming to an intersection with the Two Lakes Trail where you'll turn right.

The Two Lakes Trail weaves through most of Roman Nose State Park but you'll be hanging a right at its junction with the Switchback Trail. The trail is designated as multi-use but excludes equestrians and offers some amazing views of the area from some of the highest vantage points available. This section is home to some more difficult terrain in the park. Watch your step, but be sure to look up and catch the awesome vistas.

Flora & Fauna

The park is host to many trees that are great to see in the fall. Snakes are native in this area.
