This is a series we call the Looper. We will be hiking the FENDLEY STATION TRAIL loop which roughly follows the perimeter of the park. It is definitely long enough and has some elevation change, but is minor compared with the SNP.

Backpackers, feel free to bring your loaded packs! This is a great way to stay in shape for backpacking trips. The plan is to do this 3 times a year, once in each season (but gonna skip winter). For those that are interested, and when the weather is right, we might just camp the night and use that gear that you lugged and enjoy the park. Camping will
always be optional and you will need to make your own reservations. Bring water shoes and a towel for the spillway creek crossing. There is no bridge.

For this date event, I do not plan to camp but do plan to bring a kayak for the 2 hour out and back run to the dam. Feel free to stay and paddle after a short rest post hike. Rentals are available in the park.
