It started off as a pretty easy/moderate trail but once you get past a little rest area it gets pretty good. Took me about 2 hours to get to the top, had kid with me. Take lots of water. The views once you get to inspiration point are beautiful.

Decent hike today - albeit a little hot (mid 80s).

I think this is not the full Jesusita trail but the smaller half that splits off to the right rather than the left.

Use the same trailhead.

Then you take Arroyo Burro left at the first fork and it takes you down to Steven's Park with a very well-kept and clean bathroom.

This is a short
