Description

The Terrapin Trail is a tedious section of the Weaver's Needle Loop that can feel like it stretches on forever. Additionally, there is a portion of the trail where Weavers Needle isn't visible, and since the Terrapin Trail never heads in the direction of the needle, you'll want to have a good trail map to navigate the area.

Along the trail, there are several side trails that branch to the right. Taking these will lead to views of Weavers Needle. There is one side trail that is a bit deceiving as it looks like you are continuing on the Terrapin Trail. If you climb a steep saddle to a view of Weavers Needle, you likely ended up on this side trail by accident and will want to retrace your steps to pick up Terrapin Trail again.

Eventually, you'll come to the Bluff Springs Trail #235 junction and the trail's end.
