I went to Schor in Redrock on a cloudy grey day. It was my first big hike alone as well in an unfamiliar location. But I did the big hike and faced my fear. I made a big long post on my personal Facebook about it (here) . When I got there there was 2 trails and I took the one on the right, next time I will explore more. There is a large pond with a small island named Jon's pond. (large rock on trail says it.
The trails are marked so its some what easy to follow. If you do get lost like I did the trails maintained. There are rock formations and cliffs on your way up the mountain. Theres some cool trees as well. I will go back on a nicer day and spend more time.
