Description

This trail, surprisingly, is one of the easier trails on the Land Trust side of Monte Sano, but it's still difficult. Access to the High Trail is from the Toll Gate Trail (at the north end) and the Bluff Line Trail (at the south end). It runs primarily below the bluff at a relatively constant elevation and rolls amongst the rocks and across drainage streams and several seasonal waterfalls. Although it is less technical than either of the two trails it is accessed from, there are a few rock gardens and creek crossings that increase the difficulty level for this trail. One creek crossing is over a bridge.

The north end of the trail travels above an old rock quarry from which the rock used for the construction of the Monte Sano Railway was quarried. All that remains of the old quarry is a pond. The trail loops around the pond (optional) and also continues to the Toll Gate Trail. Do not attempt to swim or dive into the pond!
