This is one of the three main ways to get to Near Point. Others include the shorter route from Stuckagain Heights and another route from the Prospect Heights trailhead. There is about 2200 ft of elevation gain rather than the 45 ft generated by All Trails. The first part of the trail can be muddy during that time of the year. I prefer it in the fall and early winter when the leaves are gone. Ice grippers are a must in winter for the step sections.
