“The trail follows a stream cascading down the mountain.”— Jeff Stallman
The bottom of the trail is a small drop on one side and a rock wall on the other. The trail was maintained but may be overgrown in a few spots since the trail did not appear to be heavily used.
Poison oak is present along various parts of the trail.
The top of the trail connects into the Wednesday Trail and the bottom connects into the Froom Creek Trail.
There are a few abandoned concrete structures at the top of the trail that appear to have been used to control water flow.
