“A continuous ascent through a rocky and rugged valley.”— Benjamin Pontecorvo
It's a steep ascent as you work your way up this one. It's steep enough to get your heart rate up, and characteristics like water bars and large rocks keep it interesting. The way back is similar and can be hard on the knees. You'll be encompassed in a rugged valley for most of the duration of the trail.
