“3 min drive from Lodge: HARD: So, you're staying on Puzzle Mountain at our Lodge and you can get to the top in a few hours by foot. (Views are impressive and amazing as you'll see the whole SR Valley Range and the valley floor. (best on a clear day) . Got right out of development and there's a gravel parking lot about .8 Miles down on the right. Park and head towards the mountain and use the guide board. Bring water and a small backpack if you have one. expect a 4-5 hour up/back. Careful on the downhills!”
