    Lots of elevation at the beginning, and end of the trail. It was hard, but certainly worth it for the views. The trail takes you along the edge of the mountain and down into a valley with thick woods. There was more shy than I expected, even with the recent forest fire, killing many of the trees in one area. The wildlife that I observed allowed me to walk right up next to them before getting off the trail and allowing me to pass. There are several campsites along the trail that you can reserve if you want to make it a two day hike.
