DISTANCE + DIFFICULTY:

The trail is roughly 32 miles in length and is considered rustic - meaning it doesn't have blazes, signage and is minimally maintained. Difficulty will depend on your level of fitness. We consider this a moderate - challenging adventure due to the time of year and trail conditions. The route is hilly with an elevation gain/loss of 2,815’. Be willing to be comfortable being uncomfortable.
