A tough climb with three switchback sections.”
— Tammi Miller
Open from 5:00 am - 6:30 pm.
This trail has over 2 kms of climbing that starts out easy but escalates. The first of three switchback sections has a gnarly rock garden through the turn. Then you have a few downhill, flowing hills with 2 short technical drops.
The second switchback has four turns that aren't bad but ends with a 20% plus climb of 200+ meters that will challenge anyone's conditioning. After the nasty climb, you only get a few minutes of downhill recovery before you're climbing again to the final switchbacks that take you to the top.
You can catch your breath on the last 1/4 of the trail segment with some winding sections that you can coast through.
