Description

From the trailhead the route heads west and climbs immediately. The steep climb is broken by a couple of flatter sections but climbs the entire way. About half way up there is an intersection, though a sign points the correct direction to the left. If you were to continue straight, this is a short cut, though very steep. The left is the "official" trail and much more enjoyable with a couple of photographic switchbacks. Eventually, the trail will end at the intersections to the Hemlock Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Cougars have been sighted on this trail in the winter months.
