    Emm it's saying Advance. I don't know how to change it. I'd say it's a intermediate trail. Not advance.

    a trail you want to do with cool weather. It is open and exposed. 1600 elev. I did part of salmon falls and it. Pass on salmon falls and do south fork. Switchbacks add some technical along with some rough climbs. First part is a long climb but the downhill is worth it.
