“Climb up and over a ridge to a nice view of the eastern foothills.”— Brendan Ross
From the east side, the trail begins at the intersection with Castner Range Fence Line. It begins as a rocky climb to the top of a ridge, switching back twice at it goes. Make sure to turn around to enjoy the view toward the east at the top near a small clearing. The trail continues along the top of the ridge for a short distance before descending along the northern face. The remainder of the trail is smoother than the initial segment, but it crosses a few wash out areas with steep drop-offs, so use caution.
At the end, the trail merges back into Cardiac Hill and continues west towards Blue Moon.
