Need to Know

This trail, though it appears relatively short, will often take longer than intended. Ensure you plan a little extra time in case.

Description

A relatively gentle ascent out of The Garden with a couple steep scrambles ascending The Brothers and later the summit Big Slide. Most of the trail consists of winding through relatively dense pine forest with, only a few scenic view points until you reach the summit, which makes it an easier ascent during winter months due to relative protection from weather.
