The trail switchbacks up the Short Stack Trail, turns south and levels out. At .87 miles, the trail opens with views of Summit Park and Jeremy Ranch.  At 1.13 miles, you arrive at the first junction. Stay right, taking The Road To WOS Trail. As soon you come to the next junction, stay right, going uphill. Then, continue on The Road To WOS Trail traveling east. If you have a GPS, pay attention to the mileage for your next junction. At 2.23 miles is the junction for Over Easy Trail. You can miss this junction if you’re not paying attention. The trail takes a sharp right and becomes more steep as you make your way to the peak heading south. At 2.78 miles is the junction for the peak. There, take the Summit Slam Trail. After visitng the peak, head back to the junction and start on the Lower Ridge Trail, heading downhill. On this trail, watch for the unmarked loop return taking you back to The Road To WOS Trail. This return will be on the right, heading downhill, and is easy to miss. Watch your footing on this steep section. Enjoy!
