Lovely winter trail. Well marked, nicely graded and maintained. Love the various paths. Am looking forward to a return visit!
Nice well Marked trails steep uphill gets your heart pumping. Lots of rocks in the path one must keep their eye on. Was there on a Saturday good weather the parking lot was so full people were parked on the grass lots of people and pets
Trailhead parking fills up quickly on the weekends. PortaJohn at start of trail. Trails are very rocky and this inflamed my plantar fasciitis. Lots of people on the trail. Many different options/trails to choose from.
Several trail options make this area interesting and versatile.
I loved it because it felt like a challenge with the rocks and small crevices.
Afternoon Saturday hike in August. Thank goodness for shade. Did part of Ridge Trail and took connecting trail at location #4 back to trail head. Mostly rocky and uphill first half. Some bouldering And scrambling. Nice hike and will return for full 5 mile hike. Hike was mostly covered on this trail.
great easy climb.. marked well enough even for a novice.
Nice trail! Just make sure you put valuables in your trunk before parking. There's been a few car break-ins. Luckily I have dark tints.
