A gradual descent with lots of fun rock moves and a few sketchy chutes when wet. At the end is a long, flat rock garden which ends at a creek. You climb out for a few minutes and finish the trail. One of my favorites in the area.

Access Info

From the intersection of Cold Springs Rd. and Ridge Road, go on Ridge heading East for about 20 yards and the trail will be on your left.

This trail is unsanctioned.

       Take the trail to the gravel road (G-H out on the map) and make a right. Climb the fire road about 1/2 mile up to ridge road
