This is the Hunter Rim portion.  It follows the ledge of this cliff and it's extremely difficult to find the trail.

Great family hike! A bunch of stream crossings, boulder climbs, and amazing views. Even has a fire road with some exposure to navigate. — 3h 00m

Beautiful and fun hike. Accessible for most but has a lot of opportunities to scramle and climb. 5mi
