This is a nice trail with some steep sections. There are several rock outcroppings close to the trail and a rock overhang that is a nice place to take a break and possible have a quick snack. It is located fairly close to the shooting range so it can be a little noisy.

Huge rock formations towards the top of the trail make for a great place to stop and take photos. The trail starts near the firing range & can be loud at times but more peaceful the farther you go.
