We started the trail downhill for 6, maybe 7 minutes and from there it was a solid incline for probably 15 or 20 minutes. The long length of steepness in the beginning and the stairs in the end are absolute killers, but it was overall a great hike. The weather stayed in the low 70's and it was cloudy- perfect hiking weather. Definitely would recommend if you're looking for a challenge.

This is NOT the trail for South Fortuna Mountain.

I learned the hard way. This starting point is 2 miles off the trail head. This is NOT the marked trail for anything.
