These two trails make a great scenic circuit hike of approximately 8 miles.

Mount Coe and Marston Trails make for a great day of mountain hiking. Begin the journey on Marston Trail from the Slide Dam Picnic Area on the west side of the park off Park Tote Road. A little beyond the first mile, Mount Coe trail enters from the right and the ascent increases. At 2.8 miles, you may choose to take the O-J-I spur trail over to Mt. O-J-I to see the natural sculpted slope. Mt. Coe Trail heads north reaching a height of approximately 3, 795 feet. At almost 4.5 miles another spur trail is offered, this one leading to the summit of South Brother, elevation 3,970 feet. Mt. Coe reaches a juncture where Martson Trail enters from the left which is the route back to the trailhead. A third spur trail is offered onto North Brother summit at an elevation of 4,151 feet. Each summit view is spectacular and worth the extra steps. Expect to climb huge boulders and travel through low shrub areas.
