Update

An incredible trail that gets more technical and steep as you go.

Runner Notes

Lots of scrambling in the last half-mile or so.

Description

This trail starts easily enough behind the ranger station. Travel along a smooth tread with a few fallen trees to scramble around and continue on winding back and forth up the mountain. While steep, the path is pretty smooth with only a few rooty and rocky parts all the way up to the Big Dramatic lookout, at approximately mile 1.8.

There are occasional views if you peek through the trees on the way up. Continue up the trail as it gets more technical with loose scree in spots. There are more things to climb over/crawl under along the way. The top offers a nice view as well, although not as impressive as the Big Dramatic Lookout a mile below. The "End of Trail" sign provides a nice sense of accomplishment - time to head back down!

Flora & Fauna

Sooty grouse.
