Description

3.52 miles of moderate trail with moderate elevation gain. A park staff favorite because of great pines and rock gardens along the way. Along this trail, visitors can even view a stunning pine growing out from a boulder.

The trail links to Zook Loop, Medicine Wheel, and Cougar's Shadow.
