Trail head at each end of this, one on cold creek road, the other at the Gregg River Day Use Area. It's about 16km one way. Park at the cold creek road, there is a little pull out and a very faded (and vandalized) sign with a big horn sheep on it, and a little further down is a map (also vandalized).

A nice forest walk at first approaching the various scrambles to the ridge and the first viewpoint. I have only ever gone to 6km marker and turned around but I enjoy the hike, the view is great, and there is a ton of fungi and wild flowers to see along the way.

I always see a ton of cougar sign along this trail, not always the same place. I have my dog with me all the time so we've never seen one here, but it's something to be aware of especially if you're by yourself.
