Definitely recommend doing this trail clockwise. It's a good ascent to start off.

I took this trail clockwise. Starting the ascent pretty much immediately really gets the heart rate up. The way up was enjoyable, but pretty rocky. Once at the top you are walking on more of a road than a trail on the way back down. The last leg back to the car was flat and easy, nice cooldown on an 80 degree day. Bring lots of water!

Fun trail. Lots of uphill and pretty popular, but still really cool!
