Escarpment Trail
This was an absolutely beautiful hike. The trail description was excellent, weather was cool but great, and the views were outstanding!

Amazing! Add 2 more miles for Ultra Amazing!!
We did this hike yesterday.  At the junction of the red trail and the escarpment trail to Boulder Rock, take the extra mile to Boulder Rock!  It's actually .92 I believe and the trail is smooth.  The  view from Boulder Rock was well worth it!  Another .92 back to the junction and you add almost 2 more miles, about 30 minutes (not counting time spent at the rock), and a peace that is unparalleled!
