Description

This is a wide and rocky fire road with a beautiful overlook from below the summit of Little Yellow Mountain Peak. It does offer some of the more prolonged climbs in the park and some mild rocky sections. As with everywhere in this park, please be aware that this is a multi-use trail so be polite to other trail users. The rocky terrain can be very loose, so watch your footing on the downhill sections.
