Crazy steep in some spots, but lots of fun to run! Absolutely beautiful redwood forest. There were some muddy areas when I ran it because of recent floods and mudslides, but nothing insurmountable. I saw a few fire-bellied newts crossing the path early in the morning. I did not have mobile service at the bottom so I had to call an Uber from the top of the mountain.
