I hike/ bike this trail multiple times a year, have been since I was young. Great trail with a steady climb once you get past the switchbacks. Gets a little busy sometimes, beautiful regardless. I usually just go to the rock and back.

Great trail for single track motorcycle riding keep a look out for mountain bikers they will probably yell at you for being here even though it's perfectly legal for motorcycles to be on this trail.
