Great trail, but the first half is marked wrong. You want to start higher up the hill on the trail called Extended Death Climb and then roll into the middle section of this and down to the bottom

Love this trail. Have also heard it called “treegina” as someone else commented. If you download Gaia GPS there is a much more detailed segment. It is steep, but not nearly as steep as Creampie.

This trail is super fun but it most definitely is showing the wrong start and finish points. They need to be switched.
