This is all uphill. Nothing too crazy but if rate some areas moderate to difficult. First part of trail if you go early am is shaded. Rest of trail is sun exposed. Beautiful. Serenity. Very narrow. 1-2 foot wide Cliffside trail with many areas of Slippery sand/rock that drop off to ravine or cliff. Not good for me as I'm afraid of heights. I did push myself to go 6 miles up... Glad I did but won't be doing this trail again. Fear of heights and lack of people during the week for a solo woman hiker=no Bueno for this hot mama.
