Description

This is a beautiful but difficult trail just minutes from Bluegrass Parkway. The trail begins at a small, gravel parking area with a kiosk that has a map of the trail and the trail rules. Climbing begins almost immediately up to the intersection at 0.67 miles where the decision can be made to go clockwise or counter-clockwise.

In the clockwise direction, the trail continues to climb to the top of the ridge and then follows the ridge around to the intersection with a very short spur trail to a lookout called "The Pinnacle". At this point, the loop descends into the valley before steeply ascending back to the intersection with the trail back to the parking lot.
