The trail begins in Rawlins and is easy-to-moderate for the first 1.4 miles. At this point we´ll have reached 1,670´ elevation and the cool, moist air of the rain forest, with big tree ferns, heliconia, and other vegetation not seen at lower elevations. There is a long over-look vista, stretching all the way to the north coast at Newcastle and beyond. After this point, the trail becomes fairly strenuous, with a lot of ups and downs, and even a set of steep, moss covered concrete steps. The path becomes narrow at times, with steep drop-offs to one side.
