Great local hike. There are many trail paths and enjoyable enough to do it weekly. It can be muddy days after a heavy rain. I spotted a group of coyotes this week.
For a trail that's not super removed, it is quite pleasant. Good for a casual walk a bout.
great Trail hiking up and down fantastic views did not realize it was an extinct volcano crater
