Overview

This trail provides a pleasant time meandering through the forest and across a drainage. Starting from either of the two lower trailheads, the trail climbs steeply up and over a ridge to descend into a drainage on the other side. In the drainage, enjoy a lush ecosystem before tackling another steep climb up and out of the drainage to the upper trailhead and the trail's end.
