This is the biggest, sustained climb that Battle Creek has to offer. From Point Douglas Rd S, look for the trail entrance on your left. The trail starts meandering through a prairie that is chock full of wild flowers before it reaches a series of switchbacks up the hill.
About halfway up, there is an armored section. There's a great view of the river valley at the top. Enjoy the view and catch your breath. The trail ends with a rock garden. To continue to Picnic Table
, head left after the rock garden and stay to the left.
