Mostly flat with a couple good climbs! Enjoyed this hike! I would agree that it is poorly marked! The app kept me on track!

I started off the 28th str trailhead. I thought the trail was easy to follow. Rocky throughout with a couple good climbs.

Very hard to follow the trail, we went off track a few times because it’s not marked at all.

Lots of loose rock and quite hard to keep on the trail with so many split-offs. Using the app helped a lot!
