This trail is very narrow, some areas are maybe only 2 feet wide on the edge of the mountain. It's mostly very rocky, some lose rock, lots of steep areas. Not many areas to stop or have shade. Definitely not wagon or stroller friendly.

Interesting trail not too difficult. Nice rock formations and also cacti along the way.
