Great 15-20 minute climb. Never overly steep or technical but relentless and fun. It's a perfect fitness benchmark. It also takes you to all the best trails in Swasey (Terminator, Snail Trail, Mule Ridge) and the connector trails to Whiskeytown (Salt Creek) and Oak Knoll (Mule Mountain) trail systems.
