Description [Suggest Changes]

If you want to check and see if youre in shape, go ahead and try this one. The climb on this trail is very steep, and unless youre a very experienced climber, there may be a few walk-a-bike sections.

The trail starts right from the parking lot and has a few splits in the trail. Take a right at all of them. The signs are pretty straightforward as to where the trail is. When you take the last right, the climbing starts. It quickly becomes steep and doesn't let up very much at all. The trail is rocky and has big roots in parts. Towards the end you'll run into some switchbacks that pump you out at the top and lead you to a dirt road.

Near the end you'll have the option to turn left on the road and adding Steel Hollow trail as your descent, or you can go down the way you came. The descent is very steep again, and has some big rocks and boulders. Traffic is usually low if not completely empty, so letting it rip down isnt much of an issue. This trail is known for getting extremely overgrown in mid-July through August. Once the fall cold comes, the foliage seems to cut back and make it rideable again.
