Trail Overview

A very fun trail, nestled in the canyons off Lytle Creek Road. The trail starts easy, then becomes moderate-difficult as you ascend deeper into the mountains. There are spectacular views throughout the trail, and as you reach the end of the trail, you are welcomed to a large area of dispersed camping and yellow post sites to enjoy a weekend away from the city.

Difficulty

There is one major obstacle that you cannot bypass. It is a hill climb up and over 3 to 4 deep ruts that will flex your vehicle out. 75% of the trail is on loose rocks that begin to increase in size as you venture deeper into the trail.

Started a bit chilly and overcast with a good amount of humidity in the air. As we made our way up it started to very lightly snow. There was snow all around but none on the trails. All and all excellent time use the trail. Cone camp was beautiful this time of year.
