This is a challenging whole mountain loop of LandTrust and Monte Sano trails. There are plenty of rocks, small water crossings in wet seasons and some overgrowth in the remote open areas. For a route including Flatrock see Monte Sano - Whole Enchilada (Flatrock)

 You better be prepared if you decide to take this on! You will be hiking up a portion(s) of Bluff Line and McKay Hollow. After finishing Bluff Line, you will be rewarded with a dh bomber section of Arrowhead.
