Description

This trail leaves from the Prospect Heights Trailhead area and provides easy access a number of trail options as it spans 14 miles over Powerline Pass to Upper Indian Valley Trailhead into mountain hiking. Head towards Glen Alps and tear up the elevation. I stopped at the confluence of the trails and headed back but you can literally hike all day and night during the summer and never hike the same trail.

Hiked from the Ship Lake Trail to the parking lot at Glen Alps. This trail is exposed, but offered great views of the valley. 2.5mi
