Hadn't been on this trail for a while but enjoyed it yesterday. It's definitely on the difficult side especially for the first 1.5-2 hours but most of the minor obstacles thin out after a couple of hours. I remembered​ to wear some light weight gloves. They will save your hands after holding on to rocks at certain places. Take plenty of water, energy stuff and make sure to leave enough gas in the tank for the return trip.

Completed this trail for the first time today. It's been on my list after La Luz and Pino. Took about 3.5 hours to get to the top including breaks and being ~sidetracked~ for about 30 minutes. If you have a great eye for your trail and a great sense of direction, you should be okay. However, if you are like me, it's a good idea to check the app periodically. There are definitely some confusing areas. Not my favorite when it comes to views, but overall, it was an awesome time and a killer workout. Check it out for sure!

First time in a long while since I've been hiking. Did the trail to try and build my legs back up and the uphill was very challenging but it was rewarding to do.

Barb Roberts is talking about Embudo trail Not Embudito Trail-directions are correct.

There seems to be some confusion here....The Embudo trail starts at the top of Indian School (or the top of Menaul if you want to go an extra 1/2 mile or so) and the Embudito Trail begins north of the top of Montgomery.
