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.

Great trail, but couldn't find the way around to get to the back side of the loop. After seeing it on satellite, it was practically right in front of us. Bummer, our bad. Great calorie burn, though. Fairly. challenging, but totally doable if you're in good shape. We frequently mountain bike a lot of this trail so we knew to expect a lot of climb. Would do it again now that we know where we went wrong. Looks like the overgrown parts are no longer an issue.

Great hike! Not for novices or dogs, that's for sure. I lost the trail numerous times due to overgrowth. Be sure to follow the track on your phone using GPS and offline maps. This hike is best done during the winter. The summer is WAY too hot for this uncovered trail. Pants are a must due to the overgrowth. I posted some pics so you can see the 'trail.' Haha.

Nice little hike. Beautiful wildflowers out there this time

I second what Chadwick said. Think twice before taking your dog, my pup was covered in foxtails and even in places you can not imagine. So if you are not ready to spend a good hour afterwards pulling all that stuff out then don't take your pup. Also a good harness is a must, to assist when rock climbing. I would do the hike again cause we did not reach the peak due to the heat. I'd go very very early too, crack of dawn! GPS is a must! Lots of bees in certain areas.
