Astonishing bit of trail - takes you across Castle Mountain and right to the very top (well bit of a hike at the very end). Quite a grunt, some narrow bits with some exposure. Past Dannette's bench. You need to hit this trail if you want to get to Southern Comfort.

Access Info

Look for the right hander with signs near the top of Hyperventilation.
