The trial as it is on all trails is easy. I mean it's a bit steep at spots but easily doable. I routed to the top and found the gravel very difficult to maneuver even with my good hiking boots. Anyway, fun hike

This was an enjoyable hike on the ATV trail. Great views and fun to hike right up to the "thumb"!
