Description

This trail is similar to Billy Goat Trail Section A, but less intense and with fewer stretches of rock scrambling. Consequently, the trail is less used than Section A and provides a quieter exploration of the environments of the lower Mather Gorge.

Rocks in the middle are at times very large with 10 ft scrambling on almost vertical rocks. Start at the east end for more gradual climbs. 1.6mi
