Description

This trail follows the ridge directly above the Fernwood Recreation Site, and meets up with the GWT high on the mountain. As marked on the map, it ends just above a section of the GWT known by locals as "the chin scraper." Note that the trail almost disappears before reaching the top, but where to go is easily deduced as you make your own path upward.
