Start of Saratoga Gap Trail

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The parking lot is located on Highway 35 about 2.5 miles south of the intersection with Highway 9. There is ample room for a couple of dozen cars but a use fee is collected by the state. In addition to the Saratoga Gap trail, a trail to the Castle Rock formation also begins here. Although this virtual hike does not go there, a picture link can be click on to see the tafoni cave formations.
