Th Rocky Nightmare Trail itself is a short alternative route from the Warpath trail into McKay Hollow. The trail keeps to the downslope side of a nice rock wall, so it is scenic enough if you can manage to keep your eyes up and not at your feet trying to avoid turning an ankle. This trail is very rocky, with many of the rocks being hidden underneath a layer of leaves. Hiking boots with ankle support highly recommended.
