Description

This trail is a pretty steady climb to the top; the last 0.8 miles level off at times then increases in elevation, like stairs.

There are a couple of small trails off the main one that lead to some viewpoints; just be careful because those spots are drop offs. Once you get to the top, you'll see a trail to your right—that's Snow Creek Trail. There's a spur trail to the left, and if you follow that there should be some gorgeous views of Mt Townsend, if it's not cloudy like when I visited.

This trail is between an easy and intermediate difficulty, in my opinion.

Water is flowing down from this tree's partially hollowed out roots. My pup enjoyed it.

There are 2 small boulders on the trail, this is one.  It's only an issue if you're a cyclist or on horseback.

This is the start of the second side trail.

This is a little ways into the spur trail to the left. It's pretty narrow but not hard to hike.

This is at one of the side trails. I'm guessing it'd be a great view if it wasn't cloudy.

This is towards the start of the trail, it's very dry with some deep steps. It's an easy start.
