Trail shared by Walter Leitmeyer

A difficult hill to hike the whole way up.

Features Birding · Views · Wildlife

Description

A lightly trafficked loop trail that offers scenic views and is rated as difficult. There is little shade in the area, and climbing and descending tends to be steep. The trail is primarily used by those on foot, and is accessible from September until December. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

The trail surface in this loop is varied, with part of the trail being singletrack, and part of the trail being composed of paved/dirt road. The area is closed to vehicular traffic, so you won't have to worry about cars here.
