This is a great trail to hike in December. I only made it 3/4 of the way before it started to get dark I had to turn around. The temperature also was noticeably cooler as I went up the mountain. Come prepared with a fleece!
I went out at daybreak today.I really enjoyed this walk,my first in the area.My only complaint was the trails are not well marked,but used the GPS to get back on track.Nice climb..did it in just over 2 hours.
Great trail- sunny and exposed during the first part but then it becomes more shady when you get into the woods. Dog friendly which we enjoyed. FYI- The last part is spent walking on the road back to the parking lot
