This is the middle part of Jacobs Ladder, that represents the entry into the Lone Peak Wilderness and is hike only. This part of the trail is steep and unrelenting, but way finding is pretty clear. There are even areas that give you a bit of a break and a lot of the path is packed dirt.

This is a very popular hike, and a favorite among locals to ascent to Lone Peak. Once you get to the top, you can either loop it back down the Cherry Canyon Logging Trail or start the rocky ascent to the summit.
