A hike with lots of variety

Jutting Rock
Jutting Rock
Here is another interesting rock formation. Notice the rock near the bottom of the picture that appears to jut upward. The plates of rock look as though they could slide off at any moment.

Comments: We arrived early to avoid the crowds. Still, we met several people as we climbed and then descended the summit. We then worked our way along Sandy Creek and followed the trail that cuts between the Big Rock, Freshman Mountain and Turkey Peak. Once we got on this trail, and later the Loop Trail, we only met 2 other parties of hikers. I enjoy the variety of this park. You can climb the hills, climb the rocks, hike along the creek among the trees, and wander through Echo Canyon and the trees there. The Loop Trail is an excellent and smooth grade for beginning hikers.
