Description

From the Grassy Knoll at the top of Slant'n'Dicular, you can continue upwards onto the iconic Jumbo Ridgeline that spans the massive flank of Jumbo Mountain. There are still some rolling climbs with some minor exposure and a few steep sections that contour you along the ridgeline, but the payoff is well worth the extra effort.

Pass the Toilet Bowl and The Hammock viewpoints along your way before getting into the downhill. From here, the trail winds through the upper trees before breaking out into a nice open ridgeline that you get descend all the way down.

As you continue down the ridge, you'll see a few options off to both the right (Upper Rock'N'Roll then Upper Plumbers Crack) and your left (Herfendoodle), but your best bang-per-buck should be to simply enjoy this main trail and come back for those others later.

Down and down you'll go until you link back up with the lower end of Herfendoodle; continue running and you'll end up on Amber's Cactus Cutoff that'll lead you into Sweet Sunny South.
