About 1/3 of a mile, that drops down into Hawk Ravine and climbs back out. Fun.

Description

This trail's extremely short and to make a hike out of it, it requires linkage with the other trails, but even when I'm exhausted I look forward to this section just because it's never boring. It drops precipitously into Hawk Ravine and then climbs just as precipitously out.

Flora & Fauna

Hard to notice anything when you're wrestling with gravity... the trail is the scenery here.
