       It is an uphill slog. Not for the faint of heart.

       One of the nicest climbing trails in the Wasatch.

       Wouldn’t call a slog, it’s pretty gradual and smooth. Easy climbing.

       As straight up climbs go, this one is as nice as you’ll find. The grade isn’t bad and mostly shade, but if you’re coming from sea level, you’re probably going to sucking air all the way up. Stay hydrated too.

       This is a good challenging uphill without being overly brutal. Great way to access many other trails and it is nice that its shaded most of the way.
