    I hike this trail frequently since I live in The Tuke. Bring plenty water! Difficult to find since it's not marked by a sign. Access from Secret Trail at the bend turning west, there are rocks outlining the turn for Mtn bikers. This is your clue! Loose scree until you reach the top of the Z. Trail winds around then up again. Two false summits, continue following the trail. You will know when you reach the top. Great panoramic views, excellent for our grand sunsets! Turn around here or continue to National Trail to Corona de Loma for the loop back down. Most park at the Warpaint TH.

    This trail shouldn't be rated as Moderate, it's the most difficult trail in terms of steepness and loose rocks/scree I've been on yet in the GC. For a comparison, hiked Grandview 3 weeks earlier out and back. This hike is listed as steep and more difficult. In my opinion it's accurate, but not as difficult as New Hance. DO NOT underestimate this rating! We did this hike to the CO River and back the same day 4/29/17 in 11 total hours counting the time spent at the CO River. Four hours down, one hour at the river and six back up the ascent. It's worth every bit of sweat as the views are spectacular. The stillness and solitude are breathtaking, gives you the concept how very small we truly are compared to the natural surroundings. Preparation, fitness and hiking experience can't be stressed enough to truly enjoy this beautiful hike......
