Great single-track. Descended the switchbacks (would recommend doing that).. My Garmin said 18.7 miles, while my friend's said 19.5. We ran it on a Saturday evening (10/17). It wasn't busy. I would lower its rating to moderate.

Awesomeness but certainly needs re-evaluated in the easy rating.

Great hike but there is no way this 21 mile hike should be rated easy when just Elephant Rock (9.2 miles)is rated moderate, this is twice the distance and over twice the elevation change. You'll make a full day of this and you'll need 3 liters of water.
