This is fun just to go explore. Not very long but it is a lot of fun once you're towards the top looking down.

This was a pretty easy-peezy trail, mainly because it's very short. It's still quite a tiring hike, but a great quick workout to start. I wouldn't say this trail was terribly difficult. Definitely seems like a great place to get a good hike up and do some rock climbing.

I say backpacking rather than hiking because I usually do this trail with a pack of climbing gear. It's steep but groomed. It's relentless but brief. It's good for a quick pump as a hike or run if you have the strength for it.

I completed mission hills 5 peak challenge in a week and was feeling pretty proud of myself at 60 years old. I was walking the path from the visitor center to the dam when I passed by climbers loop. There was a bunch of rock climber repelling up at the top and what looked like Boy Scout troops going up the trail. I thought what the heck let's check it out and I started up the trail. This trail is different than all the rest as it's very steep and narrow in places. It's not all dirt, there are a lot of boulders you have to climb over. I was probably 100 feet from the top when I began to second guess as myself as to why I was trying something so dangerous and turned around and went back down. If you like a little excitement in your hike this one is for you

Short and sweet. Was hoping for something a little more challenging for "hard", but it was still fun. It is pretty quiet which is always appreciated.
