A climbing trail, extending from Flickity Sticks all the way up to the shuttle drop-off point on Cascade Road. It is a fairly constant uphill climb, with some steeper pitches and a short rocky section. It passes through tall forests and close by some small creeks, providing an enjoyable backdrop to the climb.
