Trail shared by Luke Brisk

A difficult climb to the top of Logan Point with some nice stone cuts.

Trail markings are only visible in the direction this trail is mapped, going from Stone Cuts to Logan Point Trail is very unclear.

Description

You can access the trail from both ends but the best way to attack it is from the Logan Point Trail.

There is a very aggressive ascent of almost 100 feet in a little less than 0.2 miles before you reach the Logan Point's stone cuts. From here to the summit it is slow going through the rock formations. There are blue arrows spray painted along the trail to show you the way to the top, which requires some climbing to reach. At the top, you can turn around and see how the way down is obscured with no markings at all to show the way. Which is why you don't want to take the trail from the Stone Cuts.

From here the rest of the trail is narrow and due to lack of regular usage the vegetation is starting creep in. In spite of that the trail is easy to follow as it descends toward the Stone Cuts. As it gets closer to its end point, it does start to get more rocky so be careful.
