“A beautiful six-mile loop through the forest with a great high point for views.”— Chelsea Gribbin
The trail descends here and ends at a road. To get back to the parking lot, cross the road and continue on Ranch View Trail back to the bottom of Evergreen Mountain Trail.
Cross the road again past the parking lot and climb the steep Sister's Trail. It climbs up switchbacks past a bouldering area at the top before descending through the forest back down to the Ponderosa Trail. You'll pass many trail splits, so make sure to stay on Three Sister's Trail. It is very well marked. Take a right on Ponderosa Trail and climb up maybe 200 or so feet and then finish with a fun descent back to the parking lot.
