This trail begins from the easternmost point of East Rim Drive, 14 miles east of Park Headquarters. The trail leads southward from East Rim Drive gaining elevation slowly in the first half mile. It begins climbing steeply along the western base of the peak, then turns eastward ascending to a ridge south of the summit. From this point the trail uses switchbacks to ascend the peak. The trail traverses northwestward to the western ridge then turns eastward for the final ascent. It ends two and a half miles from the trailhead on the 8,929-foot peak.
Directions: From Annie Spring Entrance Station, Drive northward 4 miles to Park Headquarters. Turn on to East Rim Drive and travel 14 miles to the trailhead, which lies on the right side of the road.
Elevation: 7,450 feet
