Incredible views, but calling this an easy trail is inaccurate. This was moderate to difficult and was straight down then straight back up. Very rocky, steep and loose gravel. You need to be fit if you want to use this trail.

Same as the last, this trail is beautiful but extremely dry and steep, take plenty of water, make sure you are acclimated to the altitude. Not for novices or people who are not used to the climate or altitude. Would not recommend for dogs, sharp rocks and cacti all the way down.

This is NOT an easy trail! The views are spectacular, but take lots of water.
