“A rocky and moderately difficult run.”— Paul S
Mountain bikers also use the first part of the run.
Along this run, you'll pass several backcountry camp sites suitable for 3-4 tents. They are also very nicely setup for hammock camping. Each site has a fire ring. There were at least ten we passed along the way.
Prepare for a handful of good views out over the valley mostly on the back half of the trail. In all, this is a nice route. However, beware that it is extremely rocky on the back half. In addition, the back half is also getting a bit overgrown with vegetation and the trail is quite narrow in spots.
Plentiful birds. Saw some lizards but no snakes (though the terrain is perfect for them - so look where you step).
