A nice short hike. I think i prefer this one over the Pass Mountain Loop Trail #282. It covers the best part (the Saddle), and hits another nice saddle. The other nice thing is that it avoids the park area where all the crowds are (I do like avoiding the crowds). I also have to take issue with the difficulty rating of a 3 when Pass Mountain Loop has only a 2.5 as difficulty. This one is shorter by 3 miles and much easier.

Route finding rating is completely off. 99 percent of the trail is really easy to follow, we did get off route in one area, shortly after the ridge because a good size rock was in the middle, and a trail headed west. The trail thins out, but eventually will meet with the main trail. So I would rate the route finding as a 2 on this trail.

I think this is trail is a hidden gem in this area.
