Description

As one user describes Deception, "it's packed in like a small intestine." Over 6 miles of rocky, tight and twisty turns with lots of switchbacks, and many rough sections that increase in numbers and difficulty the further you hike.

Be aware that this trail is shared with mountain bikers and that you stay alert when hiking this trail.
