 Very solid route. Not too terrible elevation. Most of the singletrack parallels forest service roads so if you want to save some gas for later you can bail on a section and still stay on route.

The section EZ Out is the most technical singletrack on the route.

Not many views except near the top of Observatory Hill

Not a great way to get out of the canyon, but it does work. Its a much better "down" trail.
