Description

At the end of the Twin Buttes Trail, take the right hand fork. Climb a short distance through a nice meadow to an old railroad bed (~1/2mi). Turn left and ascend the railroad bed. The first trail intersection is the end of the Cliffrock Loop - continue past this point to the next singletrack turn-off. The trail leaves the railroad bed and ascends a series of steep switchbacks. There is a great viewpoint at the top of the switchbacks, then you'll pass through a meadow to the end of the trail, which is the junction with Upper Ed & Flo.
