Get a lot of mileage in on this snake of a trail.

With a number of sections and nearby trails so close hikers may be tempted to shortcut. If you are indeed overwhelmed/underwhelmed by this trail and want out early, at least stop and hop over so as not to make a misleading spur.

Description

This trail starts and ends from the A Trail. Hike it either way as it will become a new sort of animal in the reverse direction. The best way seems to be to start on the upper side and head north. The trail parallels the A Trail within a few feet for 0.5 miles before making a hard switchback back on itself. You may wonder where the singletrack is head since there are five paralleling trails just a few feet away. Just press on.

The four lower trails are all part of this one and yes you'll be hiking them all shortly. This seemingly ridiculous set of switchbacks provide extra mileage and a few cool rock outcroppings. After a mile, it's time to finally hike the lower section that you have been seeing to your left.
