Length: 4.2 mi • Est. 2 h 25 m
NOTE: off line map is recommended to get oriented as several users have reported that this trail is not well marked and it's easy to get off route. This trail includes many little “waterfalls” on the way that you can see only from down below but also some awesome rock fixtures along the trail. Once you get to the top, you will walk past the gate and follow the trail on the the right. At the beginning of the trail you will follow blue and orange markers until you get to the top which then you start to follow yellow markers until you eventually get back to blue and orange ones again. Going down the steep incline for the last mile is technical and can be slippery because of the leaves and loose rocks. If you don’t want to go the entire loop but still want to see the beautiful views you can travel counter clock wise up the trail.Show more

Steep ascent up the mid-state but there are 3-4 plateaus on the way up which make for nice rest stops. It's a beautiful descent down along the creek so it was worth it. There is some Private Property located at the bottom so you need to turn left, cross the creek and head up the steep bank to Gamble Quarry Road. Show more
