Perfect for kids, plus the sunsets here are some of the best.
Great short workout for a fast walk or run. If a .80 mile isn't enough for you just do it twice. It's a paved trail / service road.
Busy trail with nice views. The folks at the trailhead were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and there was a Lunar New Years festival in full swing! The first section feels remote, but after turning onto 101 for a bit, traffic noise, a paved trail, and radio towers at the top break the illusion. For us, this was a fun warmup hike to test gear, etc before hitting more challenging/scenic routes during the rest of our Arizona trip.
