Description

This trail departs Headquarters and travels along a ridge top until its terminus at Blair-Wallis Road. From Headquarters, it's a rocky and overgrown descent into a small meadow. The rest of the trail is a nice roller coaster (up and down and up and down) following the ridge top. The trail ends with a rocky descent to Blair-Wallis Road.

This is a great way to connect to the Vedauwoo area trails, or follow Blair-Wallis to the base of Headquarters. The trail does not see a lot of use so finding and staying on the trail can be difficult. Bring a map or, better yet, bring the Hiking Project mobile app.

There are no trail markings on this trail as it is not recognized by the USFS, but it is maintained by locals.

One of the rocky descents, loose rocks make it a bit more challenging.
