Seldom used deer path leads beyond Cathedral Rock for nice view of Trail Canyon This is a nice workout with a steady climb and mostly tree lined the entire way. You'll follow the same trail as for Cathedral Rock, but will continue on the main trail straight instead of turning R for the path to the top of Cathedral Rock. When you reach the end of the main trail (past Cathedral Rock turnoff), look for the culvert with a cast iron lid (36.25422, 115.65699 elev. 8510) -- be sure and stay to the R as you cross the first gravel drainage (you're now just above Little Falls). Overlook is at 36.26024, 115.66049, elev. 8790. Try to stay on the deer path even though it is steep and slippery (pine needles).

This was a very step climb with a lot of loose rock. It gets your heart pumping but the end is a breath taking view.
