I loved this trail!! Good elevation climb plus a good combination of shady and open. Such awesome views. I feel like this will be a favorite of mine <3

Nice mellow hike! We had fun finding bugs, chasing squirrels, and saying hi to the cows as we walked by. I hiked this 8 months pregnant, our 2 year old hiked most the time, and our 3-legged dog got around great up there! Highly recommend :)

Great trail with amazing views. More on the hard side rather than moderate—especially if you go clockwise which is way more challenging.

I agree with the person posting the review right before mine. The entire trail is decent but not much to write home about. I'd give it 3.5 if I could. Not enough shade. We started to the left side, which we didn't regret. Decent workout but will not be back during the warmer months. Honestly, though, it was nice to do a hike overlooking that part of the valley for once.

Hiking

Mostly firetrail (which is kinda nice, because the parts that aren’t feel very tick-y). It’s super exposed for 70% of the trail, so bring a hat. The shaded parts were a bit overgrown with poison oak... there was a bunch growing over the path in the switchbacks. The falls are also closed right now because of animal conservation, so it ended up being a lot of being stress about ticks, oak, and rattlesnakes without a lot of payoff. I’m sure in other times of year it’s really nice but it’s definitely not my first pick for a hike. For 1k elevation though it didn’t feel very difficult

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike. Smooth and gradual elevation gain. While coming down there were parts that were steep and slippery. Mostly open. There are so many split up hikes on the way in case you want to take another route which will make you meet in this one. The view from the top is amazing !

I didn't heed people's warnings of a steep climb... I was wrong! We had a couple beginner hikers with us and they had a tough time. I had a great time with it though

Good moderate hike. For the most part, wide, hard dirt paths. Not much shade, so it would be hot in the summer. Views are ok, but not spectacular. Few hikers on a weekday, with plenty of parking. Lots of cows.

Beautiful views as always. Not too crowded. Definitely strenuous. Note — park website says gates open at 8, but the last two times I’ve been, they are open earlier (and the lot is near full by 8).
