“This point to point run combines Spy Rock Road, a portion of the A.T., and the Crabtree Falls Trail in a scenic outing.”— John Phillips
Where the trail crosses the road, turn left to descend the road to the parking in Crabtree Meadows, and then continue down the Crabtree Falls Trail. Along this portion of the trail, you'll enjoy scenic views, and will pass Upper Crabtree Falls. This is a perfect place to stop to enjoy the scenery, and the falls themselves are spectacular.
From there, it's a straight shot down the Crabtree Falls Trail to reach your shuttle car and the end of the run.
