“More technical, less crowded trail to Iron Mountain saddle.”— Chris Fa
Cautions: Exposed and can be very hot during the summer. Bring sunblock, water, and watch for rattlesnakes.
Trail: Well built trail. Moderately technical, stairs, not super flowey. Good brush clearing.
Directions: From the parking lot, continue east off a moderately well graded, non-technical trail. At 0.5 miles the trail intersects with the Iron Horse trail. Keep left at the fork and proceed uphill. The next mile is a steep climb with lots of stairs to the top of the first saddle. Take a right and proceed downhill for roughly 0.4 miles. There will be an intersection at the bottom of the hill. Take a left, proceed uphill, and cross a small footbridge. Climb for 0.6 miles and continue bearing right. Continue downhill for 1 mile until you reach another saddle and the junction with the Iron Mountain Peak Trail #10.
