This fun loop offers a scenic hike to the top of 10,863-ft. Sand Mountain.

This trail starts with a gentle climb through a less-traveled area. Scenic views as you continue towards Sand Mountain. The loop includes a moderate optional hike to the top of Sand Mountain (10,863 ft) with outstanding 360° views of the area. We recommend the hike if you have time. Several good camp spots along the way or make reservations to stay at Steamboat Lake State Park (fee area). Trail open seasonally July 1 to Dec. 1.
