Lets start with the positives- the cliffs were beautiful and the trail is truly right along the side of it show casing some beautiful rock features. I brought my sister(17) and grandma(62) both of which have limited outdoor experience and enjoyed the views.
Now for the negatives- this is the poorest maintained trail I have ever ran across. The trail is so overgrown on all sides that it is hard to see anything- causing a very close encounter with our leg less friends. The trail itself is mostly eroded away and any attempts at stopping that have caused more hazards(rebar with caution tape).

Overall, I would love to see such an awesome trail maintained. The area is beautiful and the rock wall is unique for the area. In my opinion, the elevation change and shabby trail maintenance made this an intermediate trail.
