This is a brutal and rocky climb with sustained steep grades. Some like it for the punishment others find it a necessary evil when linking up multiple canyons for a wasatch epic of sorts. Expect it to be an adventure ride with some hiking

 Mostly a hiking trail but if you like a hard tech climb then go for it! Great views but crowded on the weekends

 Rode up from Brighton to Alta and back. Its hard going getting up to the ridgeline of LCC, and on the way up, its probably at least 30% hike-a-bike. Coming down from the ridge to Brighton it is mostly rideable, there's a couple section of burly boulder fields that I would say are totally unrideable. Lots of hikers/young families on the lower section of the trail.
