Top of the World runs north from the summit of Rodney Ridge, towards the Rent Money and Pinchot trails. It is an open limestone ridge, with a couple rock outcrops that make good booters. The trail surface is loose limestone rubble. There is one sharp left turn around a limestone cliff near the bottom.
