Trail shared by Aaron Wilson

This trail is steep, narrow, rocky and loose no matter which way you decide to go.

Runner Notes

This steep scramble will be a challenge for runners, where the risk of a turned ankle might outweigh the benefits.

Description

This singletrack is extremely challenging. It's 90% rock scramble on loose rock, through steep narrow passage ways. The track can be difficult to follow as there are many points where the trail just disappears. The view on the ridge is awesome, but not sure if it's "worth it." I would suggest reaching your views from the Upper Cabin Trail instead.
