The trail doesn't get much better than this. At many places, you're not really sure there is a trail, or where it turns. Look for the rock cairns (piles of rocks) that were placed by other people to show you the way. Notice the rocks on the right of the picture. While this cairn isn't typical (most are more obviously stacked), it is clear that someone stacked these rocks; nature didn't put them there like that.

Fortunately, the major twists and turms seemed to be marked by larger rock cairns , to attract your attention.

You should have seen the cable snaking along the ground by now, or will shortly. Within a half hour or so, you'll turn away from it.
