Sulfur Skyline

Sulfur Skyline

This day hike is fair­ly straight for­ward as you park your vehi­cle in the hot springs park­ing lot, prob­a­bly will be greet­ed with the Big Horn Sheep’s tongue. The sheep love to lick min­er­als off the parked vehi­cles here. The trail­head is just behind the com­plex and the trail has a steady grade to the top. Well marked and well trav­eled.

This trail is well worth the trek as you can see spec­tac­u­lar scenery for the short effort, and great for the whole fam­i­ly to do. Bring lots of water.

You can put a twist to this hike and make a loop around the ridge. Cau­tion to any­one doing this, as there are steep faces to nego­ti­ate plus bush­whack­ing! For any­one with a cam­era on the side of their waist should check the pouch often! As Shayne and I found out the hard way. After the pic­ture below, my cam­era was lost in the bush­es. Luck­i­ly after an hour long, I mean long hard search, the end result is you get to see these pic­tures.
