Initial climb is a series of switch-backs, after first mile you hit the remnants of a forrest fire and you're in exposed terrain. After another mile (so at MM 2+) you hit the ridge line and are back in beautiful forrest.

Ran the trail in December '17 so started out cold/cool then warmed-up. Trail in great shape -- limited water rut, well marked, zero snow and no ice.

Steep hike at first! The trail sort of ends at the top of the mountain. Take it to the right (West) and you’ll be on the Ring the Peak trail section 2-3. Here are some beautiful rock formations a couple miles further, and the RtP trail offers amazing views of Pikes. Very very sparse water for dogs!

Road was closed to vehicles, ended up 11.5 mile round trip.
