Description

From the end of Cedar Gulch Trail, you can hike this trail either way. Clockwise provides a more gradual climb, with a descent that includes some steep rocky areas. Counter-clockwise provides just the opposite.

There are several small trails at the top that split from the main trail to overlooks. It's easy to think some of these are the main trail, so be aware of your surroundings.

Counter-clockwise is the way to go for a great leg workout. Clockwise will be harder on the knees going down. 4.2mi
