To get to the trail start from the parking lot, head down the hill across the road to the Cow Pond 100 yards away, then continue east, up the side of the cow pond (most turn north towards the hills here). At the signed intersection on the far side of the pond, take Vegetarian Loop to the left.
Vegetarian Loop heads straight up a wash with a gentle incline almost the whole way. There is a short steeper climb near the end with a few rocks, but its easy most. For many, this stretch uninteresting: the scenery is not as good, there are no features or even many turns. The end overlaps with Down Uppity before intersecting Lower Chutes & Ladders
