Description

The markers along the trail are more guidelines than actual trail markers. There are numerous areas that you must climb over/up boulders. The views are tremendous and there are several overlooks just off the trail. There are also ways around the most difficult boulders. It is not a long trail, but you'll be breathing heavy in several areas along the trail. Travel up this trail and then down the easier Crowders Trail; your knees will thank you.
