Description

The trail starts out off of FS Road 362. Cut through the wooden fence opening to the trail at the end of the parking area.

The trail is a fairly steep serpentine from start to finish. Starting a short ways up, you'll enjoy the stone steps that the forestry service placed on the steepest parts of the trail. Towards the peak of the short trail, there is a simple scramble to the summit. From the summit; you can see 360-degree views of the Hayman Fire scar.

After taking in the views, return the way that you came.
