A nice consistent climb from top to bottom, the higher you go, the better the views become. Note that you join with the pacific crest trail at the top, but bikes are NOT allowed on the pacific crest trail, please respect the closure for now, and support the Sustainable Trails Coalition to reverse this closure. Fast, fun, flowy back to your vehicle with a bit of tech rock and tight switchbacks - but be mindful of traffic coming uphill.
