Description

Sunset is a trail with two distinct personalities. The softer side of Sunset is from Schultz Pass to the intersection with the Little Bear Trail. It's a moderate cruise that climbs through shaded conifer forest over a small saddle, where beautiful views of the SF Peaks can be had.

Beyond Little Bear, Sunset gets serious as it climbs to the main ridgeline of Mount Elden. The "Hobbit Forest" is a steep technical rock garden set in an aspen forest. Past this, the trail stays near to the summit ridge, where there are big views to the east toward the Painted Desert over the slopes burned by the 1977 Radio Fire.
