This loop provides a great view of the neighborhood below and the downtown skyline. The south edge is a great little climb up the sharp rocks with some little technical sections to maneuver.

 Awesome trail! We combined this with Benchmark, Nice Curves, and Lower Flagpole to make a great loop from the dam. Flagpole was definitely the highlight. Amazing views along the ridge, some fun rock gardens, and a couple great drops (going CCW). Highly recommended!
