Discovery Hikes are guided exploration beyond the normal confines of the trail, but are less instructional than the other backcountry hikes. Join Park Interpreter Ali Barnes and Wilderness Patroller Carl Maple on a moderately strenuous backcountry hike along the Round Valley Loop corridor. There will be some deviation from the trail to “discover” things not typically seen by the average day hiker, so anticipate hiking 5-6 miles roundtrip.
