Made for a very nice late afternoon hike. Gentle grades and beautiful views. The large gravel on some parts of the trail was a bit annoying as it wears on your feet even with good boots, but it was well worth it for the scenery.

Casual hike, very busy with bike traffic. Hikers do not have the right of way.

Relatively nice hike. Lots of sun exposure though. Wear sunscreen.

Although my wife and I loved the scenery, we found the large gravel on the trail pretty bothersome. We both have nice trail shoes with good tread and thicker soles but still felt every step. But I have to say, it is worth the views. Just be sure you don't wear thin shoes.

This hike is easy to access and has the possibilities of going on to other loops making your hike as long as you like. It's a good first hike for people new to the area. A lot of nice windflowers in late May.

Starts out with a couple small rolling hills around the small pond. Becomes much more rocky and the trail becomes more narrow as you head up the trail toward the mountains. The farther you get into the trees the more rocky it becomes. The trees definitely give you some protection from the wind. As you come out of the trees and make your turn back, the trail opens up and becomes a lot less rocky and much wider. It is a fairly busy trail on the weekends with hiking, dogs and mountain bikers.
