Description

This trail starts from the Little Black Loop Trail and heads up steep grade. This portion is short though, and the trail mellows significantly after that.

Once on the ridge you head north along the trail which has many side trails to explore. Most of these side trails head down to neighborhoods to the east and west, which may make for a confusing journey if you're new to the area.

This trail ends at a picnic table overlooking the west side. To return to a trailhead, follow your steps back to the Little Black Loop Trail, or if you want to continue, head down to the north where you'll end up in neighborhoods.
