Covered in snow from December to April. One of the first trails to melt out in the spring.

Description

This is a great to way to avoid heavy hiker traffic on the lower part of the Van Sickle Trail. It also helps access the Barn Trail. There are some great views and a very cool perspective under the Heavenly Gondola in two sections with great photo opportunities. Do the loop clockwise to avoid a difficult sand climb.
