It’s 12 mi to the next intersection at a small saddle S of Broken Arrow. You will follow the rhododendron- and wildflower-choked Broken Arrow SE without trouble along a sharp slope adjacent to a little creek. Then you will hike right (SSW) up a petite shoulder under a rocky spire, traverse right underneath a cliff, and soon turn left (SSE) around Table Rock’s NW ridge through more firs, pines, and hemlocks. You cross a scree field to the small saddle intersection with Broken Arrow, S of Table Rock. That trail moves right (S) to a little viewpoint, then up and down the connecting ridge toward the rock outcrop known as Broken Arrow. That route descends several hundred feet, however, from the ridgeline before climbing fairly steeply just as much to the other ridge between Rooster Rock (hike 50) and Rooster Rock Viewpoint.
