Description

This out and back trail is popular with all levels of hiker. It has enough elevation to get the heart rate up and offer great views but is short enough to walk home if you need to. From the parking lot, head accros the bridge past the ranger station and bathrooms and start uphill. There are distance markers every 100 feet along the trail. This is a well groomed "sidewalk style" trail with a combination of inclines and steps.
