Overall rating: 

Excellent workout

Fun place to go get lost in the wilderness. Great workout. Really gets the heart rate up. Beautiful views.

Hard, But Fun!

This trail was definitely more on the difficult side, but I went with a couple of friends and we got through it pretty quickly. All 3 of us had a lot of fun and there are some great photography opportunities!
