“A short and technical loop.”— Zach Holt
About a half mile in, you'll be treated to a very exposed turn called Lukas' Leap. The trail runs right along the edge of the cliff and provides for a great view. There is another section of exposure toward the top of the climb but the trail doesn't get quite as close to the edge.
Once at the top, under the radio towers, you'll be treated to a beautiful view of the City of St. George. The city is framed by green trees and red rocks and topped with Pine Valley Mountain. The views alone are worth the climb, but you are also about to be rewarded with a fun and technical downhill. Much like the climb, you'll pick your way through rocks until you eventually hit a few big slabs of sandstone. Stay on your toes, there are lots of pinch points and toe grabbers.
After the downhill, the trail undulates as it takes you through several drainages and wraps back to your car.
