The most challenging loop in Angler's Ridge.

Logan Watts

Overview

Description

Witchback, as it's name implies, starts with a steep climb through a couple of nasty switchbacks.

Witchback is not consistently hard from a technical standpoint, but there are a couple of rocky sections and one really steep climb called Heartbreak Hill. Witchback has more sustained climbs and longer descents than other trails at Angler's. There is also plenty of wildlife and beautiful forest scenery along the run, although once you come out of the back loop, you may get a nice whiff of the nearby water treatment facility as you enter the fun section called Cliffside.

Cliffside is a nice smooth benchcut run along the 'cliff' that has several nice downhills and accompanying climbs.

This trail is a popular multi-use trail so be aware of your surroundings and of other users.
