Trail shared by John Maurizi

This very steep trail is commonly used as a descent from the summit of Mount Colden to the Lake Arnold Trail.

Description

This trail descends/ascends the northeast side of Mount Colden. Many people use this as a descent in part of a loop over Colden. From the summit down, expect great views. After a short steep descent, you arrive at a bench along the ridge of Colden. Be sure to turn around if descending to see Colden. From here, the trail enters the forest and there are no other views. Follow the trail all the way down to Lake Arnold. The L. Morgan Porter Trail ends just past Lake Arnold on the Lake Arnold Trail.
