Nice, short and sweet 4 mile out and back. Good for a quick training hike with a weighted pack. Several very rocky spots. I wouldn't recommend tennis shoes. I started at 0700. There were a lot of people hiking, walking, running and riding on the trails. Bust Sunday morning.
Great early morning hike. Awesome views from the top. Mixed terrain. Some rocks. Some flat. Only 1 steep section. Fun hike!
Great! I felt like it was quite an accomplishment.
