Description: We'll park at the bottom of the Stagecoach Trail.

This hike is a good workout for people wanting to up there game and not yet ready for training hill with it's loose footing and steep climb. This trail is wide and footing is much better the entire way. It also offers a year-round running stream at two places along for a much relaxing break point.
