“A trail that climbs through forest and then into a meadow and forms a beautiful 2+ mile loop.”— Tad Davis
From here, the trail switchbacks as it climbs though not steeply. The switchbacks soon stop and you'll be headed up a gentle grade before the trail flattens out in a meadow. Continue ahead until you reach the intersection with Stairway to Heaven (heading to your left) and Barking Dog Trail (heading to your right). Continue straight ahead where the trail will enter some forest and begin to drop. The trail eventually ends at Wakina Gulch. Head down Wakina Gulch a short way and watch for the other end of the Stairway to Heaven which you can take for a nice 2+-mile loop.
