This is a beautifu spot to hike with your dog, but...
My Rottweiler and I went around dusk today (approx 4:15) and spent an hour poking around the trail. Near the end of our hike though, we spotted a coyote about 200 feet away! It was a majestic sight, but a little scary. Luckily, the coyote didn't see us! Just a heads up to anyone with a small dog. Pretty spot tho!
It's good exercise. View is great all around.. but anyone who calls a walk on pavement a hike, doesn't get out of the park a lot. The actual hiking is done on the many dirt trails that go up the sides.. nw corner being the best. Has great local rock climbing spots too.. middle of summer- morning hike is best or early evening. Note- there is very very limited parking within 2 blocks radius.
