This trail is for you if you like going uphill for 3+ miles in the sun without the sweet relief of shade or level ground between unecessarily long winding switchbacks with nothing more interesting to look at than thistle. once you manage to escape the traffic noise, you are treated with the sounds of the nearby gravel plant. All this while avoiding cyclists going downhill at 37 miles an hour around blind curves. You do get one nice view of red rocks and views of the city which make it look very tiny. I did see a deer from very far away. In summation, I was not a fan. Also it was very crowded for a weekday before 230pm.
