Description

Branching off of Kibbles-n-Bits in the Cowboy Trails system, this trail is a gentle climb up the ridge to the south of the main Cowboy Trail system. It can be hard to find the cairn marking the turn off of Kibbles, but the trail itself is very easy to follow and is very well-built.

The trail is manageable most of the way, favoring gentle switchbacks over steep climbs until the very top, where the increased effort is worth the view up top. Take the trail easy and enjoy the amazing views of the Red Rock NCA.
