Description

This is a continuation of the main, red-blazed loop. It has several rocky sections, but is not as difficult as other trails nearby, the trail can be used as a bypass or shortcut for the hillier Switchback Trail, Ridge Trail, Boulder Trail and Boulder Bypass, which it connects to.

Done in the direction shown, it's a slight upward grade. The trail starts as a smooth, straight section off the end of the Lower Spanky, then crosses an old abandoned road and a powerline cut, and enters a wooded, stone-armored section. After picking up the Boulder Bypass, it enters a swampy area, with corduroy and bridges to get through the wet parts. The trail ends at Constitution Drive, where you can continue on Sticker Hell across the street.
