Description

For hikers, this is the preferred route up or down Mount Falcon. While Castle Trail is exposed and open to bikes, this trail is much more shaded, a bit less steep, and only open to foot traffic. It is still long climb, and you'll reconnect with Castle Trail soon for the final push to the upper trails.
