Points of Interest

1. Summit of Triangulation Peak

Check out the views of Jefferson. There are two peaks at the top. The true summit is the furthest one from the trail. Pick whichever has less people and relax in the sun for a bit!

2. Boca Cave

Follow the GPS track closely to find this cave. You'll need to take a small hidden path down a steep slope to find it. It's well worth the effort. See attached photos! It's big!
