“Relatively, short climb to a nice overlook.”— Jeff Monroe
Follow the orange blazing, as the trail seems to split a few times as it ascends. (Most of these are simply small reroutes to address erosion issues.) Ascend via a series of switchbacks to the ridgeline, where you turn left and follow a white blazed trail. The trail descends to an open field with a campsite before climbing steeply to Church Rock.
Although there are several trails on top of Church Rock, these do not go anywhere and the two view points are within 100 feet of where the trail reaches the summit. Views are generally northerly, with some eastern views as well.
