Description

Depending what side you start from, you are faced with a short but mostly manageable climb of about half a mile to reach the ridgeline and the epic views at the top of the cliffs. One section of the trail passes through an old apple orchard clearing and if you're lucky, you may get to snag one of these apples in the fall. The views at the top of the cliff are epic!

Although short, there are other trails and gravel roads that you can link this trail with to make for a longer hike in the area.
