“A steep run with great views of Denver and the Rocky Mountains.”— Dylan Pradas
The trail starts steep for the first 0.5 miles, alongside some powerline poles. The trail itself is very rocky and is singletrack the entire way. It levels out for a bit of a break but then goes back to a steep incline. At this point, you should still be running. However, about 0.25 miles from the top, you start rock scrambling.
From the top, experience the gorgeous views of Mt. Evans to the west and the city of Denver to the east.
