“A tough, steep, and technical climbing that spans the front of the mountains.”
— Alan Cross
This trail can be completed going either direction. Starting at Five Points gives a grueling and technical climb and a tight and technical switchback descent off of the Monogram Hill.
At the intersection with Monogram Road
and Valley View Rd.
, go up the road to the top of the monogram hill. The trail enters the woods on the opposite side, behind the fence. This section contains the tight and technical downhill switchbacks. At the bottom, the trail comes back out onto the road. The trail enters on the left right beside 1971
. It comes out one more time on the road and once again, goes back in on the left for the final climb back up to intersect 1971
