    Buckskin Trail
    2 more images

    About 1/4 mile down the Lightning Bolt Trail you reach a spot where you can continue to the Scenic Overlook or turn down the Buckskin Trail. The Buckskin Trail winds through some rugged terrain in the Buckskin Mountains and leads to the Mining Trail and the Interruption Point Trail. There is a very informative brochure available at the Visitor Center that corresponds to numbered points along the trail and tells you about native plant life.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, plenty of water, maybe a snack.
