The trailhead has water, bathrooms, etc. The trail starts off shared with other short walking trails and such, then quickly becomes a steep and rocky ascent, with some nice flowing singletrack downhill on the backside before coming back around. The climb is challenging with the steepness and rock gardens all along the path. Other linked trails are the Tom's Thumb trail and the Dixie Mine. You can also take routes all the way out to the McDowell Loop and competivite tracks.
