Description

This trail starts on the edge of the Ogallala Lake near the Cedar Point Biological Station boat house shed and travels along the side of tall cliffs. You'll go through a barbed wire gate halfway through, and be sure to close the gate when you are through. The remaining part of the trail has a substantial amount of loose rocks. It meets with Diffendal Loop at the end, and you can access the green gate on the East Boys Cabin side to exit.
