Rough trail. The first mile is hardest. So steep and rocky. The last half of the trail is narrow in places and not exactly well kept up.

I absolutely love this trail. It's tough but you see a lot of habitat diversity on your way up the mountain, from the foothills at the bottom to the forests up top. If you're into birds, you see a lot of raptors and songbirds throughout the hike. There is some clambering involved on your way up, and butt-scooting on your way down, but I highly recommend this trail. ❤️

A lot of elevation makes the trail seem longer than it is. This trail kicked my and my dog's butts. Love the diversity of the trail. Some parts are so green and lush it doesn't resemble Utah. Stay to the left at the upper meadow (rock slide). The trail is overgrown but passable. You'll hit more grass meadows and thick woods that would be great for camping. When you hit a giant rock field start heading north up the hill to summit Storm MT.
