Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

A narrow strip of trail between Venable Peak and Spring Mountain.

Description

From the intersection with Venable Lake Trail #859 and Venable Trail #347 (essentially the same trail split between two national forests), Phantom Terrace rises on narrow, exposed trail another 300 ft. Once you attain the saddle, however, the trail merges with Comanche Trail #746 and becomes very mellow.
