Hike Summary: Trail starts at the parking lot at High Point. It goes across the knob at High Point and descends into a saddle between ridges. Part of the downhill into the saddle is a series of stone steps. Most of the trail is through low gambel oak and juniper trees. After topping the second ridge, the trail descends a short way to the Warner Point overlook, from which are some great views of the canyon. Return by the same trail.
