Trail Overview

Technically this trail isn't a "hidden" gem because it's right there off Skyline Road. It might be overlooked because there are so many other nearby routes to choose from. It still is a gem in plain sight. From the summit, it plays peek-a-boo with a tranquil stream that trickles down the center of the valley. The views remain stunning for the entire duration of the trail and will change throughout the year. You enter a large wide meadow and travel slightly downhill until you see the Forest Service trail marker. Take the trail to the left, which is rated intermediate. The trail will narrow but is wide enough for full-size SxSs or Jeeps. You will travel down into a narrow canyon with wonderful scenery on both sides of the trail. You may encounter muddy sections, some more than a foot deep. The trail switches between downhill and uphill sections with a few open meadows that make for a great stopping point.
