Description

Catch this trail from the South Perimeter Trail, after climbing American Springs Road (FS 181), or after climbing Water Canyon and taking the forest road over to the camp site.

The lower half is mostly easy and flowy. The upper half is a bit harder, with large embedded rocks on parts.

Top was rocky, and I was beat from Perimeter ascent. Lower half was more fun. 4.3mi
