“A beautiful trail full of different types of vegetation and animals.”— Jake Tipton
Once on top of a rolling ridgeline, there is a beautiful view and a large amount of pine and juniper trees. If you take a look at maps you can also find Longview Spring.
Once you've gained the ridge, the running is much easier. Enjoy the rest of this longer trail, and admire the pine forest as you make your way to the Guadalupe Ridge Trail, where this route ends.
Retrace your steps to return to the trailhead.
