My second visit to Warrior's, been a few years, and nothing but positive. Challenging but doable climbs, changing scenery, ups, downs, flow, scattered rock features - just a little bit of everything to keep it interesting. If you take Darwin out of the parking lot, it starts with a switchback climb. Not a big deal, but got going pretty good on the ensuing downhill and came quickly up on a rock drop with a straight drop of about 2 1/2 feet (guessing because I didn't go back) with no warning or no bail out. Just hit it with speed and pulled back a bit and the landing was smooth and easy. I was a little more cautious after that, but really the only feature that jumped up on me. Wahoo is a nice diversion loop off of Darwins and is worth checking out. It takes you back under the highway and along some pretty cool cliffs (safely beyond the trail). Not sure if I missed Wahoo last time, or if it's a recent addition. Improved parking area (gravel in the lot and new pavement on the steep entry/exit) also includes large posted trail map, a clothes changing hut and a porta-john. Thumbs up to Warriors!
