Description

Starting from the large parking lot, head south. The trial begins flat heading south but soon turns west. After a short distance, the trail will begin to climb and wind a bit entering a more forested area. At the end, the trail connects with the Hogsback Trail for a short climb straight up the ridge to the peak of Mt. Helena.
