This trail makes for a scenic run to the top of Guemes Mountain. The top offers beautiful views of the Salish Sea and San Juan Islands. There are periodic benches along the trail for resting, as well as interpretive signs and a bike rack at the base of the trail for those who ride to the start. At the head of the trail are a few trekking poles and dog leashes for people to use and return.

Aspens, pines, deer, and assorted wildflowers can be found on the way to the summit.
