Description

The trail Starts just south of San Juan Hot Springs and ascend up a moderate hill for a couple miles after which the grades level off, though the trail still climbs. The trail becomes more rolling about 6 miles in. Hikers reach the turn up to Sitton Peak at about 7.5 miles and the trail ends at Four Corners at 8.8 miles. Users get some decent views at places along the trail.
