By the time you reach the south end of this trail, your legs should be nice and warm from the roughly 700ft climb from Power Road. The trail is mostly smooth, with many steep step-ups and a few narrow passes between small rocky teeth. Some parts of the trail are narrow and suffering from erosion, but you can tell someone has been giving it some love as fresh dirt is sprinkled in spots. The trail ends on a ridge line covered with cactus and surrounded by scenic views in all directions.

Bet this trail is a lot more fun to go down than climb up.

After the monsoon, it's just a little washed out. And now that it's dried, the top is sandy and slick.
