There are a number of "spur trails" that connect the various main trails. Although the trails are described as "Out and Back" or "One-Way" and the distances show that scenario, most people that use this trail network take a combination of trails that form an overall loop. Overall, there are a total of over 20 miles of trails in the network through the Hedgpeth Hills. Please pick up after your pets.

The trail is great for hiking and normally takes 1-3 hours. This is a nice, steady, non-strenuous, climb to the summit for anyone who is somewhat active. The type of incline where you can hold a conversation all the way up. Slightly rocky in parts but manageable. Nice American Flag planted at the top in a rock pile. Please pick up after your pets.
