Trail shared by Almonzo Wilder

A great connector trail from Swampy Summit to the Silver Peaks.

Runner Notes

A bit steep and brushy in places, and with some less-than-ideal footing, but generally a good run.

Description

From the north end of Swampy Summit Road, this track descends steeply via a beautiful open ridgeline through grassy fields and flax. Views toward Blueskin Bay and the Silver Peaks are marvelous. As the trail descends it intersects with the Burns Track, which heads southeast toward Leith Saddle. Just past this point, a fork in the trail leads either to Semple Road or the Silver Peaks Track on its way to Pulpit Rock.
