At 0.4 miles, you will see a sign for Fatman’s loop and Elden Lookout. Go left towards Mt. Elden. The trail climbs steeply. At mile 1.8 you will reach another fork – one trail leads up to Elden Lookout. Take the Fatman’s Loop Trail. You will encounter huge rocks and the trail winds through gaps between these rocks. One such gap is about 4 feet wide giving the trail its “Fatman’s Loop” name.
