Extremely rugged point to point hike on trails which have not been maintained in a very long time. This is essentially an off trail hike with a series of scrambles. Only recommended for those who are comfortable with their backcountry skills. Begins at the Corn Canyon Trail which is not on the Forest Service maps, but is marked with cairns and ducks. The rest of the journey requires a keen eye for ancient tree blaze markings.
