Great trail! Narrow/single track mostly with some tall grasses. Nothing scratchy. Solid incline with some loose gravel...intermediate. Some places with thigh high dense grass & scrub oak. Great combo of shade & open. Saw couple deer. Hit trail at 7:30am on Sunday, lightly trafficked, had all to ourselves until on way back down. A tad scary first time since so quiet and thick shrubs (& bear sign at TH & scat)...but all good! Would definitely do again and recommend to others. Small parking lot at TH. Beautiful views near top! Wildflowers abound! See pics. Should be gorgeous in Fall too w/ scrub oak & aspen!
