This trail climbs to a scenic overlook atop High Dome Mountain, elevation 3,821 feet, and a natural grass meadow (the "dome") with views of surrounding peaks and the ocean. Ruins of a former fire lookout platform remain. The trail descends to the west fork of Patrick Creek where the lower trailhead is located. Primitive camping is available at the Three Ponds site on Gasquet Toll Road.
