Description

This is a singletrack trail into the Rocky Face Mountain Recreation Area. It is a one-way alternative into the heart of the trail system and an alternative to the more popular Buzzard Loop.

After climbing the initial stone carved stair steps, follow the gravel path to the start of the trail. The singletrack trail winds though forest before a switchback climb to the top.

The end of the trail is an intersection with Hollow Rock Trail and Grindstone Trail.
