A loop trail with several entry points at lower elevations. The main climb is up a sandy fire road that changes to a grassy old logging road. The top 500ft to the summit is on sketchy single track marked with occasional rock cairns across thinly forested rock with a few steep climbs. At the summit there is a spectacular view of the Okanagan Valley (Skaha Lake and Penticton). The downhill is nearly continuous drops, turns and fairly steep open rock with lots of breaking along single track where no trail was before.

Beautifull view. Took a pile of photos but my digital camara dropped and I lost all my pictures. Sorry I wanted to post them too.
