Description

This trail is a pretty steady climb to the top; the last 0.8 miles level off at times then increases in elevation, like stairs.

There are a couple of small trails off the main one that lead to some viewpoints; just be careful because those spots are drop offs. Once you get to the top, you'll see a trail to your right—that's Snow Creek Trail. There's a spur trail to the left, and if you follow that there should be some gorgeous views of Mt Townsend, if it's not cloudy like when I visited.

This trail is between an easy and intermediate difficulty, in my opinion.

Water is flowing down from this tree's partially hollowed out roots. My pup enjoyed it.

There are 2 small boulders on the trail, this is one.  It's only an issue if you're a cyclist or on horseback.

This is a little ways into the spur trail to the left. It's pretty narrow but not hard to hike.

This is what the beginning of the spur trail looks like.

You need one of these forest passes, otherwise you'll get a $5 fine.
