“Offering great views from the ridge, this trail is about 4.5 miles round trip.”— Nathanaël Hargitt
Once you're parked continue up the the road, it will be a dirt road for the first part of the way. If you're going on a hot day this dirt road part is not the best, as there is very little shade on this part. However, the portion on the road is more of a mellow incline which takes very little effort. After running for a bit, the trail narrows and starts going up, you'll eventually come to a section of stairs some of them are a bit funky so do be careful! Also there is one section about 2/3 the way up that is a bit technical involving some ropes. They aren't really needed but I do suggest that you use them for safety and because why the heck not? After passing this rope section the tough part is complete enjoy the rest of your hike past the radio tower and up just a bit farther. At the end of the trail you'll find a bench which is a great place to eat your lunch or snacks. The total round trip distance for this trail is roughly 4.4 miles and my GPS recorded about 1,562' of elevation gain.
Always remember to pack out whatever you pack in and be prepared, this trail is great but can become extremely slippery when wet.
