This trail is a quick singletrack loop that runs to the top of Mt. Lehigh, the highest elevation at Lehigh Portland Trails. The trail begins at the Eastern Trailhead parking lot, with a twisting run through a heavy growth of cedar, followed by a short climb and then a path through hardwoods as the route circles the hill.

I did not do this trail at my last visit but regarding the park itself - I recommend visiting the website and looking at the different maps to the park to see how they all work together. There are so many trails in this park that connect, are skill alternatives to each other, and run along side each other; you should consider the trails as a whole system rather than individual trails to be done one at a time.
