“A steady uphill with a good mix of fun, technical, and smooth trail surfaces.”— Jason Flaherty
The trail has a good mix of smooth trail and technical rocky sections. The first 2 miles are the steepest part of the climb. After that it is smooth sailing to the top for the most part. About 1.5 miles up the trail you'll see a small spur trail leading off to the northeast (right). Make sure you stay left there and follow the main trail. That spur will take you over to a place called Elk Mountain. There are great views of the valleys and mountains around the area from the top.
You'll need a parking pass (day or season pass) to park within the park boundary. There is limited parking on the side of the road outside of the park.
