The trail crosses a first drainage, Dry Fork, and then follows a second smaller stream, filled with runoff into midsummer, up into the heart of the bowl. Stay right along the stream here, or you’ll miss the trail. At the base of the cliffs and hidden behind a large rock outcrop, the trail makes a sharp, nearly 180-degree turn and starts traversing the terraced ridge to the east. You final goal is the ridge top, another mile ahead, with spectacular views.

The scenery is spectacular. This trail is one of the best kept secrets behind the "Y".
