Hermit Trail Complex

Hermit Trl_PIThe Hermit trail has an extensive and rich human history, neat fossil beds, and great views as you hike into Waldron basin. Two different springs on the trail offered Native Americans and early explorers a chance to cool off and you will have that opportunity too.
