Details

This is a very shady beautiful trail under the canopy cover of the 🌲 pine trees! The trail meanders around many stream crossings. So we will traverse a couple creek crossings!
We will take a left at the Trailhead instead of right.We will hike the loop Clockwise.It makes the hike LOWER impact because we don’t start out climbing straight up.The hill becomes a gradual downhill on the return!
We will hike just over a 4 loop with about a 400 feet elevation gain.
