I can't believe how low I rated this last time. The climb is pretty steep despite being only a couple of miles long. The trail isn't all that smooth. It's rocky with divots where water runoff flows after it rains. The climb isn't tough enough to become bike n' hike, but it gets you panting. You stay under the trees for the most part, so you don't overheat. It is forest road, and that may be its biggest weakness. Still, a great workout complete with mountain-fresh air and a beautiful view of the Grand Tetons.
