“This is a lightly used and fairly rugged trail with good climbs and nice views.”— Doug Baer
There is a little parking along Power Rd / Bush Hwy along the west side of the road, but the trailhead is not very well marked. Look at the map here and figure you may have to make a U-turn the first time you go since it sneaks up on you. If the parking area is full, consider heading south on Power to 202 and use the Park and Ride, then take the Fence Line Trail to connect to this one.
When taken west to east, it is a constant uphill grade.
This trail connects to several others in the system such as the Ridge Trail, Hawes Loop Trail, and the Saddle Trail.
