This trail travels along a mountain stream and leads close to the summit. A hike here is especially recommended during summer.
About 400 m down the paved road to the left of the Cable Car Kiyotaki Station is a private house. A short distance before the house, the trail-head for Trail 6 leads left along the mountain stream.
The trail travels along the limpid waters of the Biwataki Stream through a forest of low cedars. The valley soon becomes narrow, and the trail comes to the Iwayadaishi Cave, famous for the legend associated with the Buddhist monk, Kobo Daishi. Soon after passing the cave, hikers get a first glimpse of the Biwa Waterfall.
