Great short beginner's hike. But does anybody know about the side trail that branches off, loops around the top of Tantalus, & then reconnects at the end of Telephone Rd? It's clearly a maintained trail (it even has an unregistered geocache), but we don't see it on any map or in any guidebook. See uploaded photo w/side trail in green.

Trail can be muddy, but the view is totally worth it. I went on a windy day, and the sound of the bamboo rubbing and knocking in the wind was very powerful. Great short trail to see amazing views.

It was an easy trail, wth great views..until we heard the warning bark of a wild boar! Be careful on this trail!

Great nature walk! Lots of cool plants and super peaceful. Ran out of time so didn't finish this one. But it's a good one for a trail run.
