The park is closed from the hour after sundown to the hour before sunrise.
This is a technical trail featuring steep grades and exposed rocks and roots.
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.
