The upper portion of the uptrack is a good challenge. It isn't technically challenging, just steep. If you like getting a good workout, this trail is for you! If not, take your time and enjoy the spectacular views and know that some great descending awaits at the top! This multi-use trail is for uphill cycling only. Please respect the hikers and give them right of way.
