reporter Portal is running good and is naturally challenging in several ways. The one big rock right at the greatest fall hazard I'm not sure why it's...

Watch for loose, fallen rock. Many babyhead sized rocks on trail.

 Awesome trail! People mentioned the walking part/cliffs to be scary and overwhelming, but it was just fine (as long as you walk it).
Beautiful views as well, fun technical trail.
