Description

The trail start at road on the other side from Cascade Lake Trail. Stay to the left of the restrooms and you'll start to climb immediately. Soon you'll come to an intersection, stay to your right (going left will take you to the Powerline Climb). For the next couple miles you'll climb constantly sometimes quite steeply on a very rocky, technical trail at times. At the top you'll come to a T with the Twin Lakes Trail turn right and continue to the Cold Spring picnic area and parking lot. Cross the paved road and continue to the intersection with the Little Summit Trail.
