Catch this trail from the Edina Realty Building (parking on the road) the trail goes to Sugar Loaf, but the Sugar Loaf to Garvin trail actually goes to the right. It's not well traveled and is a bit sketchy in some areas, but still a great hike. It ends in a neighborhood where you walk on the road to Garvin Heights lookout, where you can take the trail (stairs) to the bottom of Garvin then walking on road back to your car, or hiking back the way you came. Part of the trail goes through an old quarry that has some bouldering. The view from Garvin Heights is amazing!!!!
