This trail description is bullshit. Only 9 miles of this route is on a trail. The other 20 is dirt road. And I have no idea why it’s rated hard. About 2 miles of it are uphill at any significant grade and once you reach the road it is all downhill. Although that would be the exact opposite if you go counterclockwise. It was still enjoyable just a bit of a letdown as I was expecting a three day backpacking trip and ended up with an overnight road walk.

This was a great hike. It was my first 14er and my wife and I were able to do it. It is more steep than the northern trail. The directions about the 4x4 trail are correct. You need to drive the extra 1.75 miles on forest road 503 to make it to the campsite and the trailhead.

First 2/3 of trail is easy. Last 1/3 is hard. Going down isn't that easy either
