At a slight saddle, just below Big Knob,the trail will angle right and blue blazes (Dry Run Trail) will begin.

You'll drop more steeply from here. The first bit is relatively smooth with some interspersed rocky sections and an interesting log 'skinny'. You'll dip into the drainage, that can be very wet during the spring, and cross the creek. From this point, the trail becomes rockier and more technical. This continues to the bottom, the trail continues to parallel the creek on the right hand side. You'll come to a hard left turn marked by multiple blue blazes and flagging. This can be easy to miss if you aren't paying attention!

Take the hard left and cross the main creek. Climb a bit and you'll reach a trail intersection. Dry Run Trail ends here.
