Description

Much of the hiking on this loop is mellow, but there are a couple of challenging spots. The trail is a loop that you can start at any point and go in either direction though it's shown counter-clockwise here, and that's probably the best direction.

Starting from the intersection with Templeton Trail, it's smooth going on soft red dirt at first. In 1/4 mile, you'll pass a small parking lot, and after that, the trail climbs and gets rockier. There's a nice vista at the high point with familiar views out across the area. Once the trail heads downhill, you'll encounter a few rocky spots on the descent (if you're headed CCW). To add on a few miles, you can bear right onto Highline Trail for a rugged downhill hike.

The trail eventually winds through a flat rocky section back to the starting point at Templeton Trail.
