Description

This access trail connects to the Northside Loop or Big Top. Moderately steep terrain to the top. Great run for the fall or winter; gets very warm in the summer so go early. This trailhead is open year-round, but access to the North Loop from Red Hill is closed in the winter, so be prepared to be the only one out there between November and May.
