Description

This is the first point from which you can get a clear view of the distant mountains beyond as well as the South Toe Valley below. It is the perfect place to catch the sunrise if you get an early enough start at the trailhead; takes just over an hour to get to this point from the parking area at the base.

Short Hike: About 1.8-miles from the trailhead parking area along the Woody Ridge Trail (177).

Difficult trail but beautiful view. Not super technical, just straight up climb.
