    Bledsoe Loop

    There are two loops off the main trail: the Bledsoe Loop; and the Grand View Loop. I would recommend hiking to the Overlook then hit the loops on your way back down.

    Bunch Grass

    Bunch Grass is very common along the San Pedro. It is a very important plant for area animals because many animals eat the seeda and use the thick grass for concealment from predators.
