This trail is very rigorus. The trail gains over 3000 feet yet you find yourself over every canyon losing elevation and climbing up and beyond the next climb. The trail is difficult to climb at times very rocky carrying big loads for anyone other than a very experianced packer would not be suggested. Furthur back the trail is rarely traveled and alot of over growth covers the trail. At times becomes impossible to locate the trail and takes extra time and energy to relocate the trail 6 to 7 miles in. Even furthur the trail dissaperas almost alltogether following your way by searching for piled up rocks to find your way. On a park map that has no contour lines or terrain on it shows several other trails that meet up with romero canyon yet these trails are not marked. I believe that this is missleading and if you dont knwo the area you could accidently take the wrong trail. So these trails are not marked in any way. I turned around to avoid becoming lost.
