“A hike along the ridgeline that delivers continual panoramic views.”— John Parker
The trail is well-maintained and fairly flat for the first three-quarters of the trek. It makes a healthy descent of about 400 feet as you get closer to Quartz Mine. If you are heading north, you'll start this trail by making a nice uphill climb.
Regardless of the direction you travel, you'll be rewarded with some great views of the surrounding area. And since you are here anyway, a little side trip on Crest Summit Trail is recommended to complete the experience.
