The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
The Ferguson Canyon hike is a quick way to get out and away from the city.
It's 3.5 miles into the upper meadow with a gain of over 4,000 feet.
The lower portion of the trail sees a lot of traffic from day hikers and climbers, but higher up it's rare to run into anyone at all.
The trail does become overgrown and more faint the higher you go.
You can access the summit of Storm Mountain or gain the ridge for a fun scramble to Twin Peaks once you're in the upper meadow.
