This 3.5 mile hike-only trail goes out in two directions from the trailhead.

The north end (1.7 miles) is the more scenic, with several overlooks which give panoramic views of the valley below. At the north end of the trail, are some unusual pockmarked rocks known locally as Hominy Mortar. Legend held they were rocks used by Native Americans to grind corn, but experts discount this story and believe the pockmarks to be natural.

The southern section of the trail (1.8 miles) offers a quiet walk along a wooded ridge-top.
