Mount Margaret Trail
The round-trip to the summit can be a pleasant half-day-plus adventure, but it is very worthwhile to hike or bike even a small section of this scenic trail. You don’t have to bag the anticlimactic Mt. Margaret summit, which is lower than the trailhead, to enjoy a feeling of satisfaction. This popular summer hiking route has a relatively low altitude of 7700 feet and limited shade, so it can be very warm in midsummer. It is ideal for hiking in spring, early summer, or early fall, unless you get an early start and beat the heat. If you do arrive in early spring, be prepared for the marshy area at the beginning of the trail and a slightly wider stream crossing.
