Runner Notes

Watch for large rocks, uneven ground, cactus and snakes.

Description

The trailhead is near the parking lot at the Lodge and is clearly marked, however, the signs can become confusing. You may begin at the Lodge, using the Lodge Trail and the Two Lakes Trail, or from the RV area using only the Two Lakes Trail for access to the Switchback Trail. This is a multi-use trail excluding equestrian, however, it offers some amazing views of the area from some of the highest vantage points available. There are snakes native to the area as well as cactus. Watch your step, but be sure to look up for the awesome views.

Flora & Fauna

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