“A nice, gradually ascending hill that makes up part of the Hidden Mesa trail system.”— Nicholas Shannon
After about 1/4 of a mile on Cherry Creek Trail, a sign marks the junction where the route turns left off of the paved trail, thus beginning the Hidden Mesa Trail. You'll then be on a gradual uphill single/doubletrack for about a mile. Nothing difficult, just a nice steady climb. After a mile of steady climbing, you reach the "Rocky Pass" section. It is about a 1/4 mile steep, loose rock climb. The total climb is about 400 ft vertical.
At the top of the climb, you'll reach "Mesa Top Junction East." This marks the point where you turn around or add on the Rim Loop Trail for more fun.
