Hood Mountain Option 4 - Adobe Canyon Road to Gunsight Rock



  • Directions

  • Distance

    2.98 miles



  • Enter Sugarloaf Ridge State Park on Adobe Canyon Road.Drive 2.3 miles to the dirt parking area on the left and head out on the Goodspeed Trail. This park also burned in the 2017 Nuns Fire, so this hike is another excellent opportunity to see burn impacts and nature's response. After 2.1 miles, the trail crosses into Hood Mountain Regional Park and becomes Nattkemper Trail. 
  • Follow Nattkemper for another 1.2 miles and turn left for .2 miles to reach Gunsight Rock. The trail is surrounded by charred chaparral and other striking impacts of the fire. Return the way you came. 
  • Or make a one-way thru-hike from Adobe Canyon Road over Hood Mountain to Hood’s Pythian Road parking area by riding the “Sugar- Hood Shuttle” on select summer weekends. Go to the events calendar at for hours and details.
