Samantha E. on Exploration Trail
Good moderate trail with some good views at the top. I recommend parking at the lot at the bottom of Keller Peak Rd rather than the top which the directions take you to. My activity tracker clocked 10.75 miles round trip. Good hike with you dog. There aren't any sharp rocks or boulder scrambles.

This is a great trail with beautiful views! Disclaimer: the trail starting from Exploration Trail to Keller Peak is actually about 12 miles and 2000 elevation gain. This was my 2nd attempt doing this hike, as the first time I didn't have enough water and only prepared for the length that All Trails stated. This time I was more prepared and totally worth the extra miles and elevation to get to the peak:)
This is a great trail with some shade and a decent uphill climb. The trail is about 4.3 miles to a parking lot and if you want to continue to Keller Peak it's another 1.5 miles. Round trip about 12 miles. Not a difficult hike and the views are amazing, especially at Keller Peak. I completed the trip up and back in 4 hours and 20 minutes.
