This trail starts with great shading and level ground, but the difficulty kicks in and stays.

Overview

Features: Views — Wildlife

Description

The trail starts off on pavement from the road next to the church. Soon after passing by a few houses in the mountains, you meet a junction just after the bridge. Turning right will send you straight up the mountain yet the trail still provides a lot of shade.

Once the shade is gone, it's gone for good, so enjoy it while it lasts. Suddenly, you'll hit switchbacks, steep slopes, and blazing sun. It's a grueling run from here, but the views are stunning. Not to mention, this is one heck of a physical test!
