Description

If there is snow, this trail can become one of the hardest you have done. On the way up, the canopy is lost so have enough sunblock and a hat. as you'll be pretty exposed.

The upper part of the trail has pine trees and lots of canopies. There are also mosquitoes due to all the streams.

Be careful and be ready for a spectacular view as you reach the high point around 2 miles.
