Rimrock Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Two loops or a combined circuit hike through large stands of ponderosa, aspen, and birch, with views of limestone cliffs.
To hike the Upper Loop, depart from the Little Spearfish trailhead (adjacent to Timon Campground) and make an initial climb to the north for about 100 yards. The ascent is quite steep and strenuous at first, then levels off to a gradual climb as the trail angles through the woods.
After 0.75 mile the junction for Old Baldy Trail to the west is encountered near the site of an old rock quarry.You’ve reached the maximum elevation now of 6,040 feet, and here the Rimrock Trail levels out, heading north and east."
