Description

All of the trails in this area, including this one, are blazed red. The trail includes some moderate inclines for the first two thirds of the route. Shortly after beginning on the trail it comes to a junction with the Bald Mountain Spur. It then continues upward and onward to Artist's Bluff Spur.

Both of these spurs are short and offer very rewarding views. After passing Artist's Bluff the trail descends pretty steeply. Throughout this trail, especially on the way down, there are some minor exposed roots and rocks. However, this trail is generally pretty well taken care of. The trail ends on Profile Road across from Echo Lake.
