Description

This is a short two mile round trip hike. It starts with a red marker at the edge of the road and proceeds steadily uphill for the entire mile to the summit. At about 0.8 miles there is a small crack opening that provides a nice view before pushing to the top.

Pretty hard to run on but I’m not a trail runner.
