If you don't really like to hike hills don't do this one....... this is just one hill nearly 3 miles long. The only flat part is the top 1/16 of a mile. It's an excellent hike for conditioning which is why I chose to do it. The trail is challenging for most and may be on the top end of moderate and is in very good shape. It's probably best done in the fall and winter. It's structured well enough it could also be done in the rain. There were several little creeks that my lab Brook really enjoyed... There are a couple of places with very nice views as well. #267

A good training hill for trail ultramarathons. Definitely a 3 mile trail one way. Great trail! Well built and holding up well. Extremely runnable.

The first three miles, from Hwy 199 to French Hill Rd, are up hill all the way. After not doing much hiking through the winter this was a quite a workout. But it felt great to get to the top and the views are nice.

What a great conditioning hike.... Very peaceful hike! Power walked up, ran down!

A six mile round trip. The 1st half ascends gently via switchbacks. The views are obstructed by the trees. Watch out for poison oak bordering the trail. We saw a few banana slugs and a young bird of prey during the walk.
