Description

A moderately steep trail with some uneasy footing during the start. The path is narrow with some very narrow passes next to steep ledges. Cacti are everywhere with many poking into the path. I would not suggest the initial climb for children but from what could be seen from the top, the rest of the trail is much easier.
