Great hike right after all the rains! A couple downed trees over trail but totally doable.

Rain/ wet conditions! Trail closed!

There are a couple different options on this particular trail. We missed taking the main trail all the way to the top. But will definitely come back to do that part! We did end up taking the trail to the "M", which wasn't too far in, nor too steep in my opinion. Because it's been raining the trail was a little muddy in some areas. However, because of the rain, the views overlooking the mountains and city of San Luis Obispo where amazingly lush! We also had the joy of coming across two small waterfalls, one on the way to the "M" and another on the way to the Lemon Grove trail. There is also a side trail towards the bottom, that goes a little off the main trail, where we came across a little cactus ravine with a small stream running through it. So many things to see and take in. It was a nice adventure.

busy trail, paved the whole way. easy walk, one small hill towards the end at the golf course.

Lovely area, easy walk. Thoroughly enjoyable way to spend time out of doors.

Awesome quick little intense workout. Great reward at the peak.

Since it's been raining we were able to see a nice waterfall. We were not able to do most of the trail though because the dirt pathway was flooded with water and we did not have water boots. Definitely will be coming back to attempt again.
