A great ridgeline trail with great winter views and non-technical tread. The first half mile is a doozy though.

Description

Starting behind the Wilson Creek Visitor Center, this starts very steeply as it switchbacks up to the ridge, but then mellows out its climbing as it head towards the Pine Ridge Connector. From there, it starts a nice gentle grade downhill along Phillips Branch before reaching that trail intersection.
