Loose, dry and rocky. Make sure you take enough water for about 3 hours of work in hot dry conditions. There is no water between Haney Meadows and Devils Gulch. TRT loses altitude grudgingly, with quite a few up-pitches. Red Hill trail also follows a ridge due north from where Tronsen Ridge heads NW, so it is quite up-and-down too. Most of the elevation loss comes while on Red Hill and Red Hlll Spur trails, which proceed a bit faster than the TRT. The lower part of Red Hill Spur was pretty closed in with brush, so keep speed in check going downhill!

Immediately, you know it is a degree or two harder than Mission Ridge. The steeps are steeper, there is more exposure, and for my ability, a lot more hike-a-bike.

Incredible views, just be careful and pack water

 Gnarly descent and great views. Just don't go beyond the Five mile TH. Too much hike a biking and not worth it
