“A steeper descent through interesting forest.”— Adrian Whitmore
You'll head down through many rocks and cross a narrow bridge. The trail then winds down the mountain utilizing a very old cow trail and hand built trail. It has many steep descents, and several drop offs with narrow channels. It weaves through pines forest, aspen forest, meadows of thimbleberrys. Due to remoteness, many trees have been known to fall, they are old and rotten at the base, and fall periodically. This trail is so cool. Moss, rocks, and logs. East coast on mountain!
It contains a few springs as well, and some areas depending on the rainfall of the period will flow and muddy up sections.
Elk, Deer, Cows, and mosquitoes are known to frequent the area.
