“Enjoy a pretty alpine trail that passes Cold Steam.”— Russell Hobart
Continue along, and after about a mile, you'll come to an open rocky section. After another third of a mile you'll pass the Cold Spring Trail. From here the trail mirrors the road for awhile passing through mixed grassland spotted with trees. At around two miles the trail pulls away from the road again.
From here the land becomes more open and grassy. Eventually the trail veers back toward the highway and crosses the Stonewall Peak Trail. The trail skirts the edge of Stonewall Mountain, where you'll get dramatic views of the summit.
From here the trail trends downhill and passes some mature pine and live oak trees. Finally the trail dead-ends at the Vern Whitaker Trail.
