Lot of up hill towards the beginning but was overall a fun ride. Not too challenging for the beginner seeing this is the first real trail I have ridden.

I've done this one twice now, lovely hike. nice reward. when the water was higher (November vs. august) it was trickier to get across the creek to the waterfall at the end. you have to walk over some logs.

great hike! go early and bring lots of water! very exposed. could have dealt without all the dog shit on the trail. people need to clean up after their pets! otherwise stunning views and good hike!
