The blue loop, that connects with red begins at the Trumpet Round Road parking area is 3 miles round trip. The first section of the trail is steep and goes straight up, then slowly levels out and the elevation gain evens out as you near the summit. Several great overlooks await you if you hike this beautiful trail! The yellow trail that cuts through the center of the blue loop is also open. We hope to work on the remained of the red trail and yellow trail during 2016.
