Runner Notes

This is more of a scramble than run, so expect an adventure if you head out here.

Description

Heading up from Carveache Road Trail, you only go a short way before you have to start scrambling. Push through the scrub oak and keep scrambling until you get to the platform right before the summit. Make a few challenging moves in the chimney and you can enjoy the views from the top.
