Description

The West section of this trail stays low and meets Eliza's Ridge Trail at a low break in the ridge. The East section climbs up to the ridge, intersecting (#7) with Cooka's Loop. A short section of the trail is a bit steep.

This loop offers an alternative to a straight out and back on Eliza's Ridge or a connection to the lower Wagon Road below the ridge.

At trail junction #9, stay left to make the climb up the East side of the Loop.
