Great trail with both red rock and Sandstone. The first mile along the creek is spectacular. After that we ascended about 600 feet, but I wouldn’t rate this trail as hard. Most of it is easy to moderate. We went in November after a snow when all was covered in beautiful hoarfrost. I hear it can be really windy and really hot up here, and I guess I’d try to avoid it in those conditions.
