“A fun trail with killer views that forms part of the Jack-Ash project.”— Norm Young
Family Friendly Great views and easy access makes this a fun out-and-back or shuttle.
If you're climbing from the bottom, pick a cool day, as there's a fair amount of sun exposure (which is very nice in fall/winter/spring) as you climb out to the top. Once on the ridge, it's an easy and very scenic hike to the end of the trail and parking area. You'll have your pick of the views and they are all good as there are sections with some fairly steep exposure!
This is a fun one in either direction, just make sure to fill out the register, so the BLM knows all the love this new excellent trail is getting!
