We didn't think this trail is suitable for a beginner. It's rocky from the start. Some big rocks about a hundred feet in took some spotting and careful tire placement for a stock Subaru Forester Wilderness with full skid plates. The lower portion of the trail is mostly wooded, not very scenic. A portion of the trail has large ruts, which took some careful spotting. At the top there are great views include Mary's Glacier.

This is a fun little offshoot when running Yankee Hill. Not long and the beginning of the trail is the most difficult. I would say the first portion of the trail is more difficult than the rating,

Snow is starting to accumulate. See you in 2022! Will update with snow melt reports as they happen in the spring!
