“A moderate uncrowded loop near Humpback Rock.”— Lisa Gardner
When the trees are bare there are many nice views. I repeated this run in late April and found it to be an ideal time. The trees were mostly bare and limited haze in the sky allowed nice views. Also there were many wildflowers at that time. There is also a point of interest along this trail (keep an eye out!); it is the remains of an old airplane wreck (1963) on the west slope of Dobie mountain. It can be seen from the trail but most would not notice unless they are looking for it. It can be reached by a short uphill climb on an unmarked foot path.
There is a small spur on the east side of the loop to Glass Hollow Overlook. Kids can watch for a "dragon headed" tree near the turn off for the overlook.
