I took a sunset hike tonight. Didn't quite make the top because the sun was going down, but it was beautiful! one section towards the beginning is mountain goat steep! the rest is pretty moderate.

Great trail! The last mile or so is pretty steep, so be prepared for that. Trekking poles will help during the steep ascent and descent. Also, if you're not used to the elevation, you'll be working to breathe.

Enjoy!

Great for getting out and doing something like having a picnic. Very dry though.

Unexpectedly steep, I've lived here 20 something years and this is the first time I've done this. Maybe a little sore. Gonna have to do it again though.

Strenuous uphill hike, lots of fine top soil towards the very steep top, hard to get footing even on the way down. But, it is beautiful up there. Lots of stink bugs and lizards. Not a lot of places to rest.

Great, steep at first but the views and scenery make up for it.. Fairly gradual but get here early morning. Would do this one again for sure

The main portion is actually a fire access road. Hope you like a lot of switchbacks that go on forever.

Great hike! Pretty strenuous as it gains a lot of elevation and the incline is pretty steep in some places. Awesome views of Brite lake and the mountains. Would definitely do again!

I would not call this a moderate trail at all. The trail is well traveled and wide. The elevation, if you aren't used to it, which we are not, can be a bit of a challenge. There was a lot of heavy breathing and resting going on. It's beautiful along the trail and there is an amazing lookout point where you are able to see Brite Lake. We made it a little less than 1/2 way and decided to conquer it another time. Several people had their dogs and there were a lot of families out and around the area. There is also camping near by.

Tehachapi Mountaim Park trail was more than expected. There was still snow in patches and new grass growth. So pretty looking across to see the view of Tehachapi with the fog not quite burned off in the valleys. The trail itself was a little more difficult for this trail novice. We only made it up about 3/4 of the way up but will try again in a few weeks.
