Red trail markers make this trail very easy to follow. The trail is almost exclusively in a rocky drainage course until the summit block is reached. The trail is shaded until the summit. Trailhead can become crowded so, you might want to get an early start. Poles and hiking boots or high tops are recommended as there are lots of rocks and some roots.Show more
