This is a classic loop with spectacular views. If you like fast and flowy singletrack, this trail is going to be up your alley. This may be an intermediate level trail, but user should be aware of numerous sections with exposure to cliff edges. This is definitely not a beginner trail and requires mandatory travel on sections of narrow exposed trail where a fall may result in serious injury.

This is a multiuse trail. Please give the right of way to hikers. Also, please stay on the trail and avoid damaging sensitive grass and habitat.
