West Rim Professional Review and Guide

"This hike basically follows the rim of Sweden’s Cove for miles north, winding along at a fairly constant elevation. When the leaves are off the trees, this trail provides an almost constant view of the Cove off to the east and down below.

The trail is apparently also used by the horseback folks, judging from the hoof prints, but is too narrow for four-wheelers. It is a nice trail, not only with great views o to the east but with several nice little creek crossings and sculpted bluffs."
