This trail is actually a bit technical compared the surrounding trails. I actually think climbing this is more difficult than Root Canal Trail on account of it being more sustained climbing along with some technical root sections. Going down, this is one of my favorite ways to come off the mountain top. One long technical section has a good line of site and you can just jack hammer it at full speed.
