“A fun trail with killer views that forms part of the Jack-Ash project.”— Norm Young
A popular option is to arrange a shuttle between the two trailheads so you can hike down the trail, thus enjoying its wonderful views without having to do any significant climbing.
If you're climbing from the bottom, pick a cool day, as there's a fair amount of sun exposure (which is very nice in fall/winter/spring) as you climb out to the top. Once on the ridge, it's an easy and very scenic run to the end of the trail and parking area. You'll have your pick of the views and they are all good as there are sections with some fairly steep exposure!
This is a fun one in either direction, just make sure to fill out the register, so the BLM knows all the love this new excellent trail is getting!
