Description

The trail starts from a section of road that is no longer used, except to access this trail. The trail starts with a climb on a 30% plus grade. The tread starts at three feet wide, and narrows to two feet wide one mile in, and then down to one foot wide about two miles in. Water drainage issues and crossings are minimal throughout the trail.

At about 1 and 3/4 mile, there are excellent views of waterfalls and the surrounding landscape. There are interpretive signs posted throughout the trail. Almost at the end of the trail, there is a secure rope feature that assists runners in getting down a very steep hill. The trail ends at the Goat Trail. At this point you can head north and continue on, or head south to the Goat Trail parking lot.

Horsetail Falls from the parking lot after the hike above. We did this hike with 4 adults and 4 kids (aged 3,5, 5,7!) They did it! It was tough but they were awesome!

This is the trailhead at the east end of the trail. The Goat Trail and Pack Trail share this parking lot.
