Great trail, first 7 miles are mountainous with lots of brush. Mostly follows a small creek and crosses it several times. Long pants are a must and a brush axe was very helpful. The rough stuff ends in a dry, sandy, river bed (looks like it has significant flow in the in the wet season and would be uncrossable if it were flowing) that lasts for about 3 miles. After that it becomes much less fun. At the 11mile mark you just follow the road. It’s a steady uphill for the next 3 miles and is exhausting. Seeing the car at the end of that was incredible!
