If you don't feel like going to the far east end of Highline, use this trail to shorten the ride a little. If you're climbing, the Highline East Connector starts off mellow and gets steeper on your way to the main trail, winding through forest and going over rocks and roots. This trail, like the rest of Highline, is multi-use and gets a fair bit of hiker traffic.

Access Info

At the bottom, get to this trail via Powerline and a short climb on a gravel path that will take you up to the east end of Wilson Way. It's residential, and there really isn't any parking there.
If you're already on Highline, look for the East Connector sign and head down from there.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
