A Tough Ascent

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The most difficult part of this hike is the initial ascent from the Reservoir. Although the climb is steep, it is also of short duration. It is best to fix on your goal and then attempt to make steady progress at whatever rate is comfortable to you. It may help to take periodic breaks and look at the view unfolding behind you. In the early spring lush vegetation grows on either side of the trail.
