Givens, Spicer & Lowry Running/Lighthouse/Little Fox Canyon Loop 13 miles

I took the GSLRT and combined it with The Lighthouse and Little Fox Canyon Loop Trails for a total of 13 miles. Scenery was spectacular. Lighthouse was definitely worth the trek. Be sure to checkout around the formation itself as there are many places to explore. Little Fox Canyon Loop was an added bonus, all though not as spectacular as the rest, it was an enjoyable hike. All of the trails in PD park are nicely marked and have lots of picnic tables and resting benches placed along the trails. This hike has limited shade so if hiking it in the summer, make it a early or late day hike.
