To the left of Kiyotaki Station at the foot of the mountain is a small bridge that leads to Mt. Inari and forms the starting point of this trail. The course is popular for the hydrangeas and gold-banded lilies that bloom during June and July and for the magnificent colors of the maple trees that cover the mountain in autumn.
The trail, an alternative route to the summit, traverses a ridge that is different from the mountain's main ridge. The two ridges flank a stream on which the Biwa Waterfall is located and along which Trail 6 travels.
The path is quite slippery on this trail and special care is needed on the way down when the ground is wet.
