From the trailhead, the route winds west along the base of the mesa. After 2.2 miles, the trail swings south for a mile-long climb up the mesa. At the top, stop for views of surrounding mesas that extend into the distance. From here, the trail meanders south, then southwest (scan the landscape for deer) to the marble obelisk that marks the state’s highpoint.
