Hiked up this trail from the Grassy Creek Trail... the hill is a good steep climb! We looped around the park. We started on the Loop Trail and came down on the Prospectors and River Trails... I think this was a good choice on the route just by comparing the trails on each end.
A good trail for a short hike. We did this one after the geological trail and after the prospector's trail.
