TRAIL DESCRIPTION

There are many trails and loops within Golden Gate Canyon State Park that can be wound and followed leading to all sorts of views, meadows, campsites, backpacking, sites, and more. For this visit, we chose to use the Burrow Trail and Mountain Lion trails to form a loop system around Windy Peak. The trails moved through densely forested areas and clear, meadow-like sections. The peak itself was actually not windy (maybe on another day) but did offer a nice place to sit and take in the view.
