Awesome climb and ripping fast descent. The better of several ways to climb up to the Steel Hollow trailhead. You'll have a couple short, loose and rocky sections towards the bottom followed by clean dirt the rest of the way up.

      The trail itself is in excellent condition. Hardly any horse poop and quick descent. The top section is extremely overgrown and could use trimming...
