Really a nice hike.

This is a great trail. It is strenuous and adventurous. There are places where you need to go over boulders and rock faces.

It is a bit confusing to find the trailhead, but the direction on all trails is accurate.

The arch towards the end and Simi peak are great places for photograph. There are also multiple places for photos all along the trail.

Great path. Gets really iffy at some points but as long as you use common sense you'll be fine. Also a lot of great views

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

Nice views, weather was great. Good after work hike. Where you get close to the homes near the end you discover there are fewer responsible pet owners.

I'm a new hiker, suggest good shoes long pants and long sleeves. Lots of climbing. I got lost twice and could not complete the circuit. Very glad I had this APP to get me back on track.

Very nice, have not been on a hike in a while. I took my 8 and 5 year old girls. They were a bit tired by the end but we did it!

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.

Went today for the first time and almost the first hike ever for my friend and I. It was fun and we'll definitely do it again. Even though this is rated as Easy, the first 3/4 mile is where you gain the most of the elevation so be prepared to chug up a hill for a bit. Other than that, easy hike with very little if any shade. Nice breeze, overall good weather and leaving early helped with the lack of shade. Of course, wear good shoes because the trail is never flat (lots of divots, rocks, etc).

Everything Chadwick said about this trail is 100% accurate. We did the loop today, though we didn't go to the peak due to time, and almost didn't make the loop because the trail was so difficult to see. Heading east on the Oakbrook Edison trail you MUST use the gps to find your left turn. From there on the trail is very difficult with times that you'll be doing a little rock climbing, searching for the trail, and wondering if you should turn around.

Great views! I'll try to post them here but this is my first time posting on this app.

We had resolved to not do the route again, but only afterward did I read the description; we want to get to the peak now and see the market and journal.

If you plan on hiking this trail make sure to wear long pants. Spent roughly 30 minutes of the hike picking the foxtail barley (I think) out of our socks and shoes. This trail is so overgrown with this devil plant it took away a lot of the enjoyment.
However, apart from that, this trail brings you up to some great views, a cave and some great rock outcrops to climb on. This is a steep challenging trail. It was sometimes difficult to find the trail. In places the foxtail is so dense you can't see the dirt. Had to use the app to make sure we were going the right way in a few spots.

I'm glad I hiked this once. I probably won't ever hike it again though.

Great place to hike! Watch out for rattle snakes and make sure you have your dog on a leash coyotes are always around!

casual hike but choose your own pace. And of course even run the trail to add challenge!
