Description

Scenic Trail is a decent singletrack trail that begins and ends on the Pemberton Trail. It has a bit of climbing as it goes along a ridgeline and has some of the best views in the park. It is also extremely easy to get to from the Cinch Trail.

The best places to park in order to get to the Scenic Trail are the Horse staging area or Pemberton Trailhead.
