Round Mountain Trail (#805)


Round Mountain

This National Recreation Trail can be accessed at either the Round Mountain North Trailhead or the Round Mountain South Trailhead

This 9.5 mile trail travels over the top of Round Mountain and connects with Independent Mine Trail #808 near Forest Road 42.

There are many open meadows, large stands of old growth ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forest. Water is scarce, so be sure to bring enough for your entire trip.
