Overview

The McCullough Hills Trail is a long (8-1/2 miles), but generally gentle hike in the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area that runs between the Anthem Hills Trailhead and the McCullough Hills Trailhead. Along the McCullough Hills Trail, there are two spur trails each run up to an overlook. The West Overlook Trail runs north 0.25 miles onto a rounded hilltop with great views to the west, and the East Overlook runs north 0.17 miles onto a rocky ridge with nice views in both directions, but especially to the east.

For details of getting to the spur trails, trail warnings, GPS coordinates, trail photos, and other info, see the McCullough Hills Trail webpage.
