Description

This trail branches off the NET and descends down past a few small caves. It passes by a large jumbled mass of boulders and continues on to the Hermit's Castle. This is a large rock face with a shallow cave at its base. Just south of here is an old cellarhole, as well. From here, the trail continues eastward. The trail climbs a series of steep switchbacks until it re-connects with the NET.
