A nice and easy trail for the first bit that becomes slightly more rugged the further along you go.

Description

This is a very basic trail at first. It's easy to hike up initially but transitions into tight switchbacks and with more rugged terrain deeper in. Once you hit the end of the trail, turn around and enjoy the descent.
