Castle Crest Wildflower Nature Trail
#1 - Castle Crest parking area
This hike begins from the Castle Crest parking area located along Rim Drive only 0.3 miles from the South Entrance Road. Although there are no views of the lake, this hike is well worth taking, especially if you like wildflowers, which bloom all over the trail area in summer. A small stream also runs through the area, providing water for the very lush vegetation.
