Huge boulders and slabs of granite, evidence of a long-ago massive slide, make this trail particularly challenging. At one point, the opening between the granite is so narrow, you have to turn sideways to get through. At another point, you walk under a 15- to 20-foot rock overhang. Highlights: Less-traveled trail along rock slide, providing access to Sargent Mountain from northwest.
