Because of the steep grade and smooth rock, this trail should not be attempted in wet conditions.
Connecting La Espina Ledge and Granola Bowl, La Espina's short distance features a nice viewpoint and either a challenging climb or precipitous descent. Switching back a short distance into La Espina Ledge, the trail climbs briefly to a viewpoint at the top of the hill. The path continues north briefly before turning left and beginning a very steep descent along the northwest face of the hill. Smooth flatrock helps control the pace on the way down, but care needs to be exercised as a fall here could easily result in injury. As the trail smooths out, it turns south and joins Granola Bowl.
