“Short, steep, adventurous trail through a deep ravine featuring boulders, waterfalls, caves, ladders, and Sugar Creek.”— Michael Kontos
Trail may be impassible during periods of high water.
Take the first right you come across and head back towards the parking lot. (If you continue straight, you'll intersect Trail 5.) You are now entering Frisz Ravine. This rugged valley features small waterfalls, boulders, small caves, and two ladders to climb. This is the difficult portion of the trail, and dogs are not recommended. Eventually you'll exit the ravine and meet the Trail 1 Ridgetop Connector, which you can use to access the parking lot, Trail 5, and Trail 1.
