Description

The Orange Trail ascends from the Blue Trail to the top of the mountain. It is a mix of single and doubletrack trail that is very technical and steep in spots. Visitors can use this trail to climb the mountain and end just below the observation deck. This trail passes a rock outcrop and an old mica mine.
