Description

A highly-recommended trail with an easy bottom section, steep strenuous middle, and well-constructed top section above treeline making the last push to the ridge very pleasant with less of the scrambling of other trails in the area. There are several ladder climbs on the trail. It passes a long, picturesque waterfall. There are also great views of Castle Ravine and the Castle Trail across the gully.
