Chamisoso is an interesting trail that pops off of Powerline, and is definitely a better way to climb, as Powerline gets crazy steep and rocky further on, and can be a decent (if scary) descent, but is not a fun climb.
Chami is, however. The beginning will take you through a mellow meadow section for a nice warm-up. You'll run into an intersection at the Coyote-Chamisoso link, and at this point stay to the right. Then it's a bit more meadowy warm-up before you start hitting the more technical, rocky section of the trail. Nothing too bad as far as difficulty, but loose rocks/dirt combined with steepish sections can be challenging. Good up or down.
