Nice quick cheap conditioning hike

We didn't do the full loop. Someone had told us where to find fossils, so we ventured onto the ridges to look. We went on 6/9/18....there were a TON of Rattlesnakes. We saw one about 6-7 feet, we also saw one that was about 1 foot, so younger. Be very careful with your kids and pets! They were directly on the main trail. One was in a hole... keep your kids hands out of holes. We did have fun on the hike, and did get to see some fossils. There is very limited shade, so keep that in mind. This seems like it would be a fun sunset hike.

The weather was great for a hike. We parked our car behind the museum in the parking lot and walked up the fire road passed by The Village. There was no trail sign so we just kept following the fire road. Eventually we got lost and wound up at the top of Long Canyon Trail. We couldn't figure out the loop so we just came back the same way completing 5.7 miles by the end. Conclusion: take a map with you. The GPS didn't work well.

Nice wide trails at least in the beginning
Lots of bikers
Lots of coyotes judging by all the poo

Went out with my son on a Boy Scout hike with full packs at 9am. The temperature rose quickly and there was not a lot of shade on the trail. There was only one reckless mountain biker. But otherwise the trail was quiet and only locals were out doing their daily loops. It is really a great view and just enough ascent and descent to get a solid workout.

I love this trail because you can make it what you want - a walking path with slight to moderate incline or a few hours of steep hills.

Trail wasnt marked all that well, we found ourselves well off track turning this 6mile hike into a 10 mile one. Probably 70% of that distance was outside this loop... and not a lot of shade out there for the dog. Cool views though from the Powerline towers if you go that far.

There's a portion of this loop on the Sunrise Trail that had a fire back in November 2015. It's shortly after turning off the Autumn Ridge Trail taking the loop clockwise. It has a very nice flowering of blue dicks this year. It may turn into a nice patch of wildflowers as other fire followers start to take root. It's worth keeping an eye on.

Be aware that a portion of the Albertson Fire Road is closed. It's a .5 mile stretch and the detour is .7 miles. If you start your bike or hike from the end of Lang Ranch Parkway and decide to continue on the portion of the trail that is clearly marked as closed to the public you will encounter a chain link fence and locked chain link gate on the far end.

It's a climb. I rode it today on my mountain bike, but I'm outta shape so I didn't make it to the top. I'll update my review when I'm able to conquer it. I think I'll try running it next time so I can enjoy the view.
