Nice short hike. Rocky footing. Beginning is uphill with a view of city at the top. Very little color but did see several bunnies.

Great for kids!! My girlfriend and I took my 9 and 5 year old girls on this trail. Went went early in the day when it was cool, and good thing, because there is NOT a lot of shade cover. The trail is short enough that snacks are not really necessary. Decent elevation (first half, or so, is uphill) and nice views of Downtown in the distance. Overall good, fun, and educational trail. I would do it again. I would also recommend to use the GPS on this app to stay on the right trail. There are a few forks and it's easy to get off track.

Need a little hike to fill up a little time or need a few steps to kick start your 10,000 per day? Then this is a perfect little trail for you. Only 1.2 miles but a lovely little loop. A bit of a steep rise, but you're at the top of the loop in no time. A quick little jaunt from the trail near the top gives you great views of the valley. Springtime cacti blooms are plentiful. Easy and gets your heart rate a bump.
