Did partial of this trail catching it at 290 and hiking up and over to 273 intersection. It was the day after a heavy rain so the trail was a bit washed out and definitely moderate steep. Views from the high point back towards Tin Cup Pass beautiful. And the hike down to 273 easily trail run-able. Great time w/ my 78 year old dad!

The trail is mixed grade inclines and declines, with 3 very steep sections, the rest were gradual. Some nice views along the way, varying from mountains, valleys, waterfall (extra 3 miles off the trail), and aspen groves. Great camping spots 6.5 and 15 miles in for backpacking. Trail was well marked, plenty of water sources after the first 6 miles.
