You cover significant elevation change on this hike, and the initially gentle grade of the old roadway is deceptive. After 0.5 mile, the trail narrows somewhat and alternates between gentle declines and moderately steep drops: here the path is comfortable gravel or packed dirt, there it is loose and rocky. Wear sturdy footgear (bring along technical sandals for wading) and take your time—on warm days, make sure your hardworking trail dog has plenty of splash time in the creek and plan to break often in the shade on your way out.
