The trail starts a moderate incline for the first mile and levels out at the top of Little Bald Mountain. At the top there are spectacular views of Red Star Ridge, Duncan Canyon and French Meadows Reservoir. From there you may choose to make a short side trip to Duncan Peak Lookout, which is staffed during the summer months.
