I usually do really easy hikes, nothing hard at all. expect this one guy I was dating told me that it's not "that" hard of a hike and it gets easier after the first mile. So I was all like sure I'm up for an adventure. Turns out that this hike murdered my legs and made me want to die after I got through the steep incline. I am not a quiter, but I wouldn't do this hike again unless I was in really good shape. turns out him and I didn't work out, passed his stupid little test though.

Great for altitude steep hill climb training. Not enough nice views to make it a 5 star, but it is excellent for training as the name implies.

Nice trail! Training Hill was very slick after the recent rain. Trekking poles were essential on this part.

Favorite pre-hike to do is the uphill portion of training hill and then go back down to the parking lot via pig farm. Good challenge but it keeps your glutes in check

Great hike! The hill is no joke, but if you get it out of the way you have miles of beautiful meadows and woods to ramble through.
