One of my favorite trails. Nice climb up a brook then climbing up and over rocks and boulders. You even climb through a rock slide and behind a giant rock slab that is kind of like a cave!

great hike - the giant slide is the toughest part but well worth the effort. You can easily bag 4 peaks on the hike!
