      Right from the beginning you will see this trail is kind of special with the dark tunnel canopy entrance.
      This trail has lots to offer from steep tight technical root sections towards the top of the trail to more open flow at the base of the trail.
      There are many wooden features that I would avoid as they have not aged well.
