Did this trail about a week ago it was so beautiful and the weather was perfect! Not to mention the air is so crisp and clean
This one is a jewel! We weren't expecting it to be in the real forest, and were very surprised by it. It's well marked and easy to follow, and there are brochures (there were actually some in there) that allow you to take a walking tour of the trail. It's and odd one though, as the peak is 3/4's of the way through instead of half, so although you're climbing for a while, it does end. Geocachers have a little surprise at the top, too. Should be great for snoeshowing, which will be our next stop there.
Great little hike on July 16. Perfect place to get out of the valley heat in the summer. We took the loop portion clockwise, which is the recommended route. Great view from the top both directions.
Great hike. There was a tree down over the path so we had to go up a clearing near the peak of the trail. The forest firefighters were there clearing the trail. I expect the original path to be clear next time I go up.
I Completed the loop with a couple of experienced climbers in little over an hour before Memorial Day. It's a great beginners hike. The trail is well marked but a tree blocked the trail near the top. No biggie getting around it, though. Easy and fun hike for all ages and hikers.
Beautiful trail even on a windy day. Head of the trail is clearly marked just past the fire ranger station. Clouds were nice rolling overhead. Don't miss the summit after getting to the clearing -- it will be to the right. Had a tree across the trail towards the top so be careful. The wildflowers were everywhere. It was so refreshing!
We did this hike 4/3/16 it was a nice trial. There was still some large snow banks you had to cross over and some recent fallen trees blocking the trail but other than that beautiful trail. Be sure to grab a map booklet at the beginning it has a lot of history of the land. Very easy trail for all skill levels. If you like to Geocashe there is a few along the way...
Went up for an Easter Day hike, a little chilly, we started at about 10:30a/m, but once you got moving, fantastic...wore a light sweatshirt the whole time. I would consider a moderate trail, some flat, but a bit up hill slope, okay if you do your cardio regularly...but if not, might be a bit strenuous. Ran into snow banks, still in formation going across the trail, beautiful scenery, fresh air, gorgeous trees, and all around fantastic day....
Beautiful trail. Found out about it here. It was unclear where it started. It starts at the fire department right off the main road. Sign says it is 3.5 miles but my tracks said it was 7 miles. Took two children and they enjoyed it. Got to see cows and a deer on the road.
An absolutely fun hike. We went early April I believe and there was still some snow in the trail, but just enough that our hike was 75% normal trail and 25% snow trail. the views were breathtaking and the weather / hike was very fun. Slightly uphill but easy for most any level. Highly recommend this trail during this time.
Great hike ! The only down side is there were no brochures in the box...maybe they don't stock them in the winter. Regardless. It was a great trail that I would do again.
Great hike for beginners! Awesome views. Easy elevation gain. Also, love the memorial bench at the top. We brought sandwiches and enjoyed them when we got to to top. Didn't see any signs of the Native American area. Also, the trail head is right by the fire station so if you lock your keys in the car like we did, you can use their phone.
Nice trail for new hikers. My 10 year old nephew made it easy. Memorial bench at top with a nice view of other peaks and of farms in the Central Valley. 20 degrees cooler at the peak then the Valley floor. Great way to avoid the summer heat. Trail is well defined and maintained. No flyers were in sign box that had Native American history as signage stated.
