Not terrible, but some areas are full of sharper small rocks (I'll definitely not be wearing my vibram 5 fingers again). The cave is not really a cave however, more of a cove, and was infested with bees. Overall not the best, but definitely a unique view of the valley!

Awesome trail. Went past the cave to the summit. Watch for crazy flying ants at the top if you head up.

Was a fun trail I think we did some overlapping with another trail. Ended up at 2.45 miles. Saw 3 horses, a dead horse, and 2 large rattle snakes as well as normal bunnies and birds.

definitely beautiful scenery however the amount of garbage all around was very unpleasant. I also did not feel very safe even with my dogs.
Perfect area for a picnic with friends.

Went clockwise. Seemed easier than counter clockwise. We wanted the sun at our back for the last leg. Good lookout with a nice rock to sit on about 2 miles in. Great shady spot a little less than halfway through. Took 3 hours. Counter-clockwise hikers looked like they were struggling.

Hot but well worth it. Recommende by a friend and definitely a good early-day summer hike. We got a later start (7:30ish) and went counter-clockwise; met a half-dozen other sturdy hikers over the next few hours but finished at 11:00 promptly. Will likely do it again but start at 5:00 am!
