Moonrise: 5:16 pm
Park Curfew: 10:00 pm

THE PLAN: Expect a moderate hike of about 4 miles with approximately 855′ of elevation gain.

DIRECTIONS: From C-470, exit westbound on Alameda Pkwy. Go past the Dinosaur Ridge sign on the right, and then continue on the road where it turns right/north onto Rooney Road. After you turn north, you can see the parking lot for the trailhead on the right about a mile up the road. Driving north or south on Rooney Road, you’ll pass a yellow sign for hikers crossing the road, and then a second one—the entrance to the parking lot is just after the second sign, on the east side, south of an electrical transmission station with several large electrical towers.

WHAT TO BRING: Appropriate gear: jacket, water, snacks, etc. Since we will be finishing after sunset, bring a headlamp.

DISTANCE/GAIN: 4.0 miles RT. Elevation gain: 855 ft. (Level: Moderate).

DOGS: Well behaved dogs are welcome. Dogs must be leashed. Dog owners must clean up pet excrement, per City of Lakewood regulations.
