A full-on slap in the face difficult climb in the heart of Doughton Park. If you like vert, you'll like this trail.

Overview

Features: Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Description

This trail begins near the backcountry campsites on Grassy Gap Fire Road and quickly starts climbing up the Bluff Mountain Ridge to Alligator Back and the Mountains to Sea Trail (Bluff Mountain Trail). The climb gains over 2,000 ft in its short distance to the summit with little breaks. It is unrelenting and awesome!
