Description

From Sheltowee Trace/Pinch Em Tight to Rough Trail #221 this ridge trail provides more loop options when hiking from the Grays Arch area.

There's not a whole lot to say about Rush except you can escape from Rough Trail if you don't want to do another descent and associated climb, or you can loop it up and do some figure-8's to make things interesting on a longer hike.
