It's not an easy trail for beginners. It's a climb but worth the struggle. It took me two tries before I could finally reach the top. Now I hike it the times a week and I love it! I suggest hiking it at night with a flash light, so much fun.

Wide trail, friendly people and good climb. Overall a good trail run.

*****not easy, it is moderate****** BEAUTIFUL Trail with wonderful views. We took my 84 year old great uncle who used to be a runner on it thinking it would be an easy low incline trail. Easy is definitely not the right word to describe it. It is moderate even for someone in shape. It is steep and rocky, sometimes hard to find footing(especially for someone in their 80s) recommend for a beautiful view and nice walk just wanted to make sure people know it is not a super easy trail! Would definitely go back.

does anyone know if this trail leads to an oasis or water creek?

If you head left at the trailhead it climbs pretty quickly and gives a great leg work out . After it peaks there is a long slow down hill back with a lot of decomposed granite so wear appropriate shoes to be slipping and sliding

I would like to help get more people up to the top of this and others like it so they too can enjoy the fun down hill ride, maybe even a few times in one day. please help me. go to my link below thank you
