“While not offering great picturesque views, this loop offers a great four-mile run with many challenges.”— Adam Hill
Continue up the trail along many switchbacks until you get to another fork with the Whittaker Wilderness Peak Trail. A quick jaunt to the right/east will take you to Wilderness Peak; jot down an entry into the ledger before heading back to the fork where you'll continue straight/west down the Whittaker Wilderness Peak Trail. This trail offers a more gentle descent. After about 0.75 mile, you'll reach the short section where this ties into the Long View Peak Trail and Shy Bear Trail. Continue on the Whittaker Wilderness Peak Trail.
There are multiple crossings of the small creek along the trail, mostly via planks sawn from the trees felled nearby; be careful as these are often slippery. The run is complete once you reach the original fork and head back down the trail to the parking lot.
