You have to climb Bear Chutes to get to the start of this, which is a brutal monster climb that will blow you to pieces. Watering Hole is then a brutal gnarly downhill. Lots of steeps, little drops, sidehill. To be honest it doesn't get that much use and can be hard to follow. Lots of people get lost in the forest section where the trail becomes indistinct.
