Description

This trail begins at a left hand turn off of the White Dot Trail at about 1680 ft of elevation, or about 0.6 miles into the trail. The White Cross Trail will begin by turing west before turning north, then west again, which will bring you to the first of two steep sections along the trail. The trail will soon come to another steep section with built-in steps to aid your ascent. Continue on until the trail meets back up with the White Dot Trail. Turn left up the mountain to reach the summit.

A less steep but exceptionally rocky alternative to the White Dot. Still works as the preferred descent route on a loop
