A gentle hike after a tough climb connecting to the downhill section of Rose Valley

Angus Dunlop

Features -none-

Description

Once you've worked your way through the tough ascent of Rose Valley, this is a gentle respite around the backside of the peak connecting you to your downhill run. You'll get a welcome break from the tough climbs, and this trail features much gentler slopes and a little bit of rolling terrain.

You can also look for the trailhead of Bear Bones to start a longer hike around the reservoir.
