As the trail follows the top of the ridge, majestic views of the Spanish Peaks, Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountain Ranges can be enjoyed. Along the two-mile trail, marker posts have been installed to accompany a self-guided brochure containing information about the area's plant and animal life and its history. The brochures are complimentary and are available at the trailhead. Bicycles are prohibited on this designated nature trail." Lathrop State Park has two campgrounds. The Pinon Campground is larger and RV friendly, while the smaller Yucca Campground is ideal for tent camping.
