Description

Starting at the picnic and swimming area at Hanging Rock Lake, the trail climbs steadily to Wolf Gap at 0.5 miles. At Wolf Gap, the trail has a junction with the Wolf Rock Trail which joins in from the left.

The trail follows the ridgeline and has a junction with the Magnolia Springs Trail at 1.1 Miles. The next landmark is House Rock, a large flat rock outcropping with good views to the south at 1.3 miles. The trail then continues its climb up to Cook's Wall coming to a dead end at the Cook's Wall Overlook at the end of the trail.
