I hiked this as part of a loop with Genoa falls. (Much better for cyclists on this trail.) There are few shady spots. Easy hike.

The rocky sections had huge drop offs and went on for a few miles- maybe 5 or so. Wasn’t expecting that. Just a ton of loose rock slide, not like a rock garden. Was hoping for a fun, flowy downhill. A bit disappointed in this one.

Rode this today from the Eagle Canyon trailhead. Nice and dry way up, then a few patches of snow easy to get past. About a half mile from the top there was a lot more snow and I decided I didn't want to hike that much so I went down. Given that it's going to warm up, should be good to go pretty soon.
