Really nice, mostly rideable trail with some chunky granite features along the way. Feels like it's between Blue Square and Black Diamond difficulty. A bit of hike-a-bike but nothing too killer. Great out and back, but maybe a little too short of a ride.

 I love these challenging trails that are filled with really technical climbing. You have to fight for every inch on this trail. The scenery and adventure are well worth it if you are up for the challenge.
