This is a tough climb from either direction. It's loose and rocky, and you'll find ledges to test your skill. At the apex, you'll find yourself in the middle of local history. The stone from this quarry was used to build many structures in Colorado Springs.
You can launch off the many ledges, or hike-a-bike through the tough sections. As with all the trails in this park, you'll encounter hikers and horses. Stop and say hello!
