“Run it because it's there, sort of.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
Southeast of the intersection with Rock Garden Trail, the doubletrack was well-established, and following the trail to the end leads to a grand viewpoint of the undeveloped area of the park. The various spur trails shown on the park map running to the cliff edge were very poorly (if at all) defined with the exception of Fractures in the Rock Spur.
The trail can only be accessed using the difficult Rock Garden Trail and runners who enjoy The Rock Garden Trail are likely to find this Rylander Fortress Cliff Trail uninteresting.
There are gates going to private property at the northern terminus and mile 2.5.
