So this trail is shown on the park map and if you look hard enough, you can tell where the doubletrack runs (or used to run). When I traveled it, the part from the northern gate to Fractures in the Rock Spur
was mowed and easily followed. The center portion between Fractures in the Rock Spur
and Rock Garden Trail
was difficult to find with grass standing three feet tall in some places.
Southeast of the intersection with Rock Garden Trail
, the doubletrack was well-established, and following the trail to the end leads to a grand viewpoint of the undeveloped area of the park. The various spur trails shown on the park map running to the cliff edge were very poorly (if at all) defined with the exception of Fractures in the Rock Spur
The trail can only be accessed using the difficult Rock Garden Trail
and hikers who enjoy The Rock Garden Trail
are likely to find this Rylander Fortress Cliff Trail uninteresting.
There are gates going to private property at the northern terminus and mile 2.5.
