    Though short, this is a great hike through a very old second-growth forest, ending in a ridge with magnificent rock towers. A catwalk "trail" across two parallel ridges is the frosting on the cake. The first ridge encountered is good, but don't miss the second ridge, reached via a side trail at the upper part of the first ridge. The trail continues a couple hundred feet farther north but soon becomes a rock scramble. Gaia rates this as "easy" due to distance and elevation gained but it's a bit more that that.
