Agree with Jeff Picard’s review that this trail is mostly on shale and the trail is not always apparent. My dogs splayed their paws and trembled from time to time as they tried to maintain their footing on the loose and angled terrain. The first 5 mins of the hike are clearly marked and the view is of the cliffs on the opposite side of the highway. That much of the hike was great! The rest required intent concentration.

Let me start by saying the rating of moderate is accurate but the description is egregiously understated. First and foremost, their is no clearly identifiable “loop” to be found and in this rocky, cliff type terrain, can be very dangerous. It is important to note as well that at least 60% of the trail is made up of very small to large, loose shale rock making the walk for those who may be less than sure footed, a very difficult trek. Their are also areas which require navigating short but steep, rock outcroppings. All in all, hiker beware, the views are beautiful but it is not a normal, “moderate” hike. The trail is also listed as “dog friendly” which couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are many cliff areas and large smooth rock ledges that once a dog was on it, was not able to keep from sliding off. In addition, by the time we got up and determined that it was not safe to continue to look for the “loop” route, all of the flat shale rock surfaces had gotten so hot our dogs pads were beginning to burn with no other option but to speed up an trail with less-than desirable footing to begin with. Not “dog friendly!” Being a seasoned hiker, I would go back for the challenge and views but but I would not take my dogs or anyone not confident or comfortable with varied trail surfaces and scrambling up and down rock piles and outcroppings.

A few downed trees and some spots with interesting rock footing. But it was very beautiful

Great hike. A few downed trees on the trail, but passable. This site is featured by the National Forest Service as a place to see big horned sheep. I didn’t see any, so I will be back. Warning: watch out for ticks.
