Description

The trail is well maintained with only some moderate climbing and a few technical rocky sections. This loop trail can be reached by way of the Escalator, Mule Mountain Trail or Mule Ridge Trail.

Best done as a counter-clockwise loop from Jareds Table at Mule Mountain pass if you want to connect to the Snail Trail at Black Bear Pass to descend back into the BLM Swazey Recreation Area, although clockwise is also good if you plan to do a complete loop on Mule Ridge Trail and descend the Terminator (upper section of Mule Mountain Trail).

For more information check out the BLM website.
