Nice trail that will take you to the thickest forest. Nice views in spots but the foliage blocks many of the views. It is a bit strenuous as it goes, so I don't think small children would enjoy Starts out gravely and rocky in the Pinon/Juniper forest and will take you through thick forest.

Very hard trial, we lost the trail at a point and picked up the end of the second trail (tunnel), going around the ridge; making it a 12 mile hike. Beautiful view and challenging hike

Great trail...when it says hard, it was hard..for me anyway. My Labrador was also very winded. Be careful coming down, the incline is somewhat deceiving and when coming down it was pretty slippery. The views were amazing, take a camera.

Great hike, can take a short cut up the valley instead of around, don't recommend going back down, tennis ball size rocks with hard footing can lead to injury. Beautiful vistas along the way. Bring lots of water.
