HARD. Know that going in it is straight up hard from the get go. The middle part is technical and fun. The trail is marked exceptionally well! The descent is steep. ....tight. Watch your footing. Its a fun trail! Enjoy!

It was great at first, but then that was it. I was just expecting more of a workout and something longe, other then that, it was good. About 3/4 in there's a rock formation off to the left (not on the trail) but if you make the effort to hike on top of the rocks, there's a pretty good view.

Straight up the side of the mountain. Felt like my calves were going to pop. Loved it.
