This trail is the best kind of trail - both beautiful and treacherous. The trees are thick on Mount Lemmon and they're what you'll be winding through on the intense downhill. The uphill is steep, but a little less technically scary.
The scenery more than makes up for the difficulty of trail. The views are glorious. Just don't let them distract you from what you're doing and watch out for hikers. If you're really daring, you may even want to try the last descent twice.
