The trail is the summer road for trucks up the mountain. It isn’t as steep as the Ute trail or other trails up, but we didn’t get a lot of shade and felt challenging for us novices as most of it is at 15-30% grade except for a somewhat flat portion for 0.5 miles or so. The nice part is the gondola ride down is free, and dogs are allowed (we brought our 8 month old German Shepard puppy who didn’t seem to have an issue).
