The park is closed from the hour after sundown to the hour before sunrise.

Runner Notes

This is a technical trail featuring steep grades and exposed rocks and roots.

Description

From the trailhead, take the Sleepy S Trail until it turns into the Meadow View Trail. There will be a junction with the Bergen Peak Trail about a mile from where Sleepy S Trail turns to Meadow View.

Take the left-hand turn and begin the climb to the top of Bergen Peak. Though technical and steep, the view at the peak of this trail is unbeatable, as there are 360-degree views of Squaw Peak, Three Sisters and all the way out to the plains.

Flora & Fauna

It isn't uncommon to see elk, deer and various hawks on this trail. Be aware during dawn/dusk hours that mountain lions have been sighted in the area.
