“A quick loop that provides views to the south, west, and east.”— Kevin Bonner
The hill then moves down and the trees and brush open up to views of the southwest. There's another bench there as well where you can watch the cattle graze on the grassy knolls below, or catch vultures or hawks gliding in the air up above.
Immediately after that second bench, you'll turn down into the well-shaded portion of the loop on the way back to where you started. Keep in mind, this is all backwards if you choose to take the left path first!
