Prepare for many switchbacks as this trail is a very exposed, cactus riddled joyride. Consisting of loose granite over hardpack, there are a couple tricky climb sections that are rocky technical, or loose and off camber. In essence very typical for the area given that 80% of the trails around here are black diamond. And its a tight trail so be extra careful
