Easyish new trail - Orange Hammer (KML included)

So, I'm not sure who cut this new trail or put up the plaque but we saw a bright orange gleam on our way to sunbonnet and decided to check it out. Keeping with the 'hammers' trail name theme, I guess this one is paying homage to the Harbor Freight (tm) orange deadblow hammers. OK, I'll play:

The trail isn't very steep but has some pinchy spots, some leaners, and some waterfalls to crawl up. It looks infrequently run but was a lot of fun. It looks like the trail could be extended to make it more challenging as there's quite a deep and interesting canyon leading up to the plaque, but as it is, it's probably about as hard as the first 2/3 of Aftershock (more or less). One nice thing is that it's essentially a loop so you can run it either way.

Here's the KML file that I created to help anyone try to find it.
