Highlights: A steep climb from Second Gulch to Hardscrabble Road, Creek, Aspen Grove

This hike offers the best way to access Pipeline as part of a loop.  There is a good moderate climb up to the Hardscrabble Connector.  From there to Hardscrabble Road provides the most difficult climb.  This climb is challenging but is over a fairly short section, and once on Hardscrabble Road the hike is very flat.  The hike down Pipeline is very scenic.  The hike concludes with a mild downhill on Third Gulch all the way to the parking area.
