Jacob's Ladder is split into 2 sections. Lower and Upper, joining midway at Glen's Loop (the Lower Saddle). Lower Jacob's is a good climbing trail and an moderate downhill trail for novice trail riders.

Upper Jacobs is more difficult a climb & descent, with steeper pitches. The very top of Jacob's from the Upper Saddle into Hannah's junction is a steep descent in a ravine, which is rocky and narrow. This short section requires an expert level of skill, but it can easily be walked.

Access Info

Climb up Glen's Loop onto Gondola.

Half cleared from all the trees down. Still many more to go, but getting better. Can hike most of the trail now, but not rideable yet.
