Route Description for 200 Trail
200 Trail is an interesting route best suited to the hiker who doesn’t mind a bit of extra exploration. It’s very hard to follow and there are a lot of spur trails, but some of them offer incredible views. If you’re happy to roam around and see where the trail takes you, you might find some great vistas!
Bring a GPS track for this hike and pay close attention to it. Some of this route gets very close to private property, so make sure you keep dogs leashed, respect signage, and take your trash with you.
From the trailhead, you’ll hike out to where the trail splits. We like to hike the flatter portion on the left first, looping around where you’ll encounter a junction. Keep right at both junctions, climbing modestly up the ridge where the view opens up a bit. You’ll traverse along the ridge, descend through a couple of switchbacks, and return to the trailhead.
