Start at the main parking lot for the Perkins Central Garden Trail. This is an easy, 1-1/2 mile roundtrip over a concrete footpath, with less than a 30-foot rise. Wheelchair and stroller accessible, this loop is in the heart of the Park at the base of the highest rock formations. Many wildflowers are found close to the unique rock formations.
Palmer Trail is a moderate, 3-mile circle with less than a 250-foot rise. Nearly circling the entire Park, this trail covers rolling, rocky terrain away from the traffic. It also gives you an opportunity to see some beautiful wildflowers.
