The first part is great. Witing road is steep but not unbearable. The trail is also well maintained wide and offers an uncountable amount of amazing vistas. There are Mountain lions so bring bear spray. I would really recommend this first part on whiting road. But the billy goat should only be for billy goats! The trail is nice and shaded at first but then 400 foot drop offs are on both sides of the ridiculously THIN trail. For most of the trail.
