Individual Trail

Bring a sufficient amount of water, it will be needed especially in the summer when combining the steep hike with hot weather.

  • lots of opportunity for off trail exploration here, There are the remains of an old homestead below the last push to the top. A spring fed water system is the visible remain, and depression where there could have been a cabin.
