A tougher alternative to the Bergen Peak Trail, this trail is consistently steep with switchbacks.

Runner Notes

This trail is very steep with exposed rocks and roots. This is a great trail for hill training!

Description

From the Elk Meadow parking lot, take the Sleepy S Trail to the Meadow View Trail, and continue on for about three miles. If you reach the Founder's Trail, you've gone a little too far.

This trail continues west from the Mountain View Trail and offers an alternate route to the Bergen Peak Trail, though the Too Long Trail is steep, with a ton of switchbacks. Once you've summited Bergen Peak, the descent is quick, and demands full attention.

Flora & Fauna

Bergen Peak is consistently home to elk and deer, and coyote and mountain lions have occasionally been sighted.
