Runner Notes

Get ready to test yourself on this trail both on the ascent and descent. Careful foot placement is key on this trail.

Description

This is a steep, rocky trail littered with tight switchbacks. The ascent and descent are equally challenging but you efforts are rewarded with great views from the top. This is a nice trail to tack on some extra vert/milage to any run in this area.
