Description

This is a singletrack trail into the Rocky Face Mountain Recreation Area. It is a one-way alternative to the Buzzard Loop into the heart of the trail system.

After hiking past the Rocky Face, the singletrack trail winds though forest before a switchback climb to the top. The end of the trail is an intersection with Hollow Rock Trail and Prison Camp Trail.
