More Difficult, 2.8 miles.
(This trailhead is closed during winter months)
The trail begins in Mazie Canyon with ponderosa and white fir, but soon nears aspen. In the summer, this is one of the most colorful areas when the wildflowers are blooming and the butterflies are fluttering. It is a major avalanche path in the winter. About halfway up the trail is a waterfall just off the trail with is a short, old road leading to it. As the trail goes up out of the canyon toward the back of Cathedral Rock one gets a view of the avalanche chute below. The trail climbs a few short, steep switchbacks before reaching the summit, with a spectacular view of Kyle Canyon.
