Great trail with tons of stairs. Even more challenging if you park at the park at the bottom of the neighborhood and run up all the hill, however this is not for the light of heart.

Great it you're looking for a challenging trail! The only reason I'm rating it a 4 is just because I was expecting the total distance of the trail to be 5 miles but it seems like the only way you're getting 5 miles out of it, is if you count the distance you go back. Definitely would recommend! Bring good shoes, you're going to be going up a lot of stairs.

Tough hike with all the stairs, especially the last mile heading away from the boardwalk! i was looking for a challenging trail. Found it. Bring lots of water. Not much air moving low in the canyon.
