Description

This is not an official or incorporated trail, it is a 'deer trail' that has been worn by many a hiker. This path is not recommended for kids, elderly people, or people with disabilities. Also, be careful if it is rainy.

Starting at the parking lot on Pass Island:
1: Go right (or shout) until you find the stairs down.
2: Take a left on the most prominent of the foot paths.
3: Follow the foot trails until you pass under the bridge and come around back to the stairs.
4: Head up the stairs and back to the parking lot.

This is a truly special trail with views all around. It is especially good for sunrises and sunsets.

Flora & Fauna

Pines, ferns, grass, and more.
