Route Description

This is a trail of 1.2 miles in length and 350 feet of elevation gain. Though the trail is not very long or doesn't have much vertical elevation gain, it is the toughest and roughest trail in the park. Those famous boot eating rocks are found the entire length of this trail. On a clear day there are great views at many points along the trail. The trail also connects to the Overlook Trail to reach Hawk Point which affords the finest views.
