“Another difficult side loop offering beautiful vistas in the presence of various cacti.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
It's probably better to run this in the counterclockwise direction as the difficult climb is relatively straight and then you'll have a twisting trail for the descent, but there is no reason it can't be taken clockwise.
Towards the middle of the trail, you'll find an overlook with a great view of the Ice Cream Hill Trail #1b and the fun parts of Spring Branch Trail, which should both be on your to-do list if you've made it this far.
