“This is a popular trail that powers up to Iron Mountain Peak.”— Russell Hobart
After another 0.5 miles you pass the Ellie Lane Trail on your left and turn to the right. From here the trail changes character, as large rocks become boulders and the views become more expansive. A short while later, you pass access to a helipad on your left.
At around 2 miles, the trail begins to switchback along a more open ridge before you are finally rewarded with a big view from the summit.
