Trail shared by Shag E.

A hard climb with a few tight switchbacks rewards hikers with a nice descent to finish.

Description

The climb starts mellow and quickly gets tougher. Four tough, steep, and tight switchbacks on the way up to the top give this trail its name. You are rewarded with steady descent down the other side to connect with Middle Hill Lane and Middle Hill Top.
