Bulwark Ridge

Contributed by ranchez

The Bulwark Ridge trail climbs steeply for a miles and passes the Indian trail (#927), which is a steep connector down to the Miller Fork trail. Bulwark Ridge trail then follows the boundary of, and occasionally enters, the Comanche Peak Wilderness before meeting the Signal Mountain Trail near the summit of Signal Mountain. The views from Signal Mountain are stunning.
