“A trail that powers up from Lookout Creek to the top of the bluff.”— Russell Hobart
From there, head uphill at a relatively comfortable incline. Cutting across the hill, you eventually switchback and pass the Upper Truck Trail on your left at about 1 mile.
Take a right turn from here and one more switchback leads up to Jackson Gap Trail.
