STEEP!! If you're looking for a leg workout this is the trail for you. Keep in mind you're hiking in a desert with no shade, you can go during the day but I recommend going early in the morning 5-6 am. Not for children, lots of ledges steep climbing.

Terrific views, wild horses, and a short gnarly climb/scramble up to the top to overlook Grand Junction.

Tough trail but the view is worth it! Also, keep an eye out for wild horses.

Steep incline/decline in a some places. Quite a bit of climbing over large boulders. Excellent endurance hike!

The view is worth the effort. A bit of a challenge going up and down. Looking forward to the next time.

Great hike. My 8 yr old made it to the top with a little coaching.
