My favorite trail thus far. Great views! Lots of fun exploring the area - there's lots of little trails to take.

Pretty easy trail. It was quite muddy today from the rains last week but still gorgeous!!

Loved the view on top! Going inside the cave was fun too. Make sure to wear proper hiking shoes with good grip, you're gonna need it here.

Good hike! Caves are neat. The forks in the road are basically shade vs no shade options.

Wear pants and good shoes - you have to climb some rocks to get in the cave!

This one was exhausting for my dog! I had to carry her half way down one hill.

Awesome place to run but there are better suited trails for running here than this course but it's still a great workout with lots of views. You'll see plenty of lizards scrambling to get out of the way so I assume there probably are rattlers here as well although I haven't seen any. I've spent the past few days in this area going out on runs and it's fun exploring the different paths while getting some exercise and even though this location is 30 mins from home, it may become my default training camp.

Such a fun little hike! I had gone with my younger sister and we had a lot of fun, it is a pretty easy trail although it does get a little harder closer to the caves. It is a little hard finding the correct trails - there aren't any signs to help know where to go so we had to use this app. As two teenage girls, we had freaked out when we heard what we thought were bats when we were climbing into the cave but we continued going in and it turned out to just be pigeons. The climb into the cave is a little tricky, probably not the best for little children but it isn't anything too difficult. Overall for such a short hike it is a very fun one to go on - super recommended!

Lovely cool and cloudy in the early morning then on the way back sunny and a cool breeze. Wonderful hike for early July brown but still beautiful and quiet!


I love it...
