Fun hike. Took the baby on our Kelty-Pak. A little strenuous on the switchbacks, but very doable. Bring water. We did 2.5 liters.

The Good: Nice hike, good distance for a 1 to 1.5 hour trip depending on your speed. Gradual incline along the first half either clockwise or counterclockwise and it was well marked. Views were nice along the way, but nothing breathtaking.

The Bad:
There are lots of guided horseback rides on this trail and a fair bit of horse poo.
We were hiking over a holiday week but in the middle of the day on A Monday it was pretty busy.
$6 park entrance fee per car or $2/person on bike, foot or horse.

Ok trail, well marked $6 to get in, horse poo all over watch your step! Relatively busy if you're looking for a secluded trail, this isn't it. Family friendly loop with mild elevation gain.

Well laid out trail. We started counterclockwise on the trail & had a mild incline to reach the top. Views are great. A lot of sun, little shade. Went at 9:30am & saw 4 people on the trail. Very peaceful & relaxing hike.

It is a nice trail with a very gradual climb in the clockwise direction. I would have rated this an easy trail. I was unaware there is a $6/car fee/day to enter the park.
