Trail shared by Scott Todd

A short trail climbing from the Swank Trail to the Sundance Valley Trail before heading south to Sundance Mountain.

Description

This trail branches off the east side of the Swank Trail, at a junction marked by a 40-foot pillar of rock. The eastward trail begins as a nice singletrack but then the climb, which is fairly steep, is a bit eroded with poor traction. Once atop the ridge it returns to a beautiful trail with nice views and intersects, at the 1 mile mark, with Sundance Valley Trail. That intersection is easy to miss, marked only by a set of dead branches leaning against a tree in a teepee shape. The trail then continues eastward before turning south and finishing on top of Sundance Mountain.
