This beautiful loop starts just past the end of Fairway drive. After you cross the stream, stay to the left and you'll see a trailhead on the left about 50 yards down the path. Start your climb and be rewarded by the amazing vistas of Ignacio and Lucas valleys when you arrive up on Big Rock ridge. Turn left and head to the "down" portion, which is prettty steep at times - make sure you have your poles. At the bottom you'll end up a block away from the end of Fairway. In all a fabulous loop.

Seriously steep incline to get up, and equally steep on the way back down. But gorgeous forest and incredible views when you get to the top!
