Rated: Moderate | Length: 4.0 miles | Type: Loop
Are you looking for a waterfall hike? Check out Spill Way Loop to see some of the most accessible water scenery the park has to offer.

For a longer adventure, Skyline Trail offers a little bit of everything. Views along this 9.5-mile hike include waterfalls, lakes, rivers, wildflowers, and more! Expect a few rocky and steep sections of the trail. Rated as difficult, we recommend starting early in the morning and going with other people to ensure you have enough time to safely get back to your car if you plan to fish or bird-watch.
Lookout Mountain Loop

Take some time to see the sites on Lookout Mountain Loop trail. This trail offers some stunning views and must-see lookouts at multiple parts of the hike.
