    Route Description for Drew Trail via Highline Trail

    Drew Trail via Highline Trail is a nicely shaded hike with gorgeous views from atop a mesa viewpoint. It’s a real treat in the fall when the colors start to turn, but we recommend it any time of the year. There’s a campground atop the mesa you can use, or you can explore the other trails that are accessible from the end of this one.

    From the trailhead, take Highline Trail across the creek, staying right where a spur trail heads off to the left. You’ll have a few steeper climbs broken up by flatter sections until the final climb to the top.

    Once atop the mesa, admire the wide-open views. While the route extends further to General Crook Trail, there’s not much to see beyond the viewpoint, so you can turn around here and descend if you prefer. If not, keep going to check out the trails up here or set up at one of the many campsites.
