Description

The Cathedral Rock Trail is a short scenic route that's great for the whole family. The trail begins with a mellow incline on a singletrack gravel trail. There are several benches and viewpoints along the path. The gravel gives way to a broader dirt trail that flattens out before narrowing at the top for a final steep approach. The summit allows for a great panoramic view of the valley.
