Hiking

OK this one kicked my butt I must admit. My daughter's and I were the only ones up the higher trail till we got to Mt Olympia. one other person. Hiked 2940 ft, lunch, pictures and rehydrated. Suggest at least 4 to 5 liters of drinks PP. Great views. Starts easy for the 1st mile then get ready to climb, very steep some areas, and mostly in the sun. We had to park 1/4 mjle away to avoid ticket, trailhead is permit parking only.

If you are a beginner for hiking then this trail is extremely difficult. Make sure to carry plenty of WATER mainly in summer. The trail is up and down over couple of hills, so it seems you have reached destination after every hill but you realize there is a long way to go. Just to give an example after the trail it showed 185 floors climbed in my iPhone. The views are very beautiful and calm breeze is very relaxing over the top of hills. Recommend to go with company, have not seen any crowd. Be well prepared, would not be a random trail over the weekend.

Great hike. Went at the end of August at 1 PM. Big mistake. Not too shady and hot. Would do again in the morning.

The trail was awesome but if you are going on August there is no waterfall. Btw it’s very hot ! So stay hydrated!

This was definitely moderate+! Went super early this morning - only saw about 10 other people on trail. Definitely some difficult parts of the trail, but great scenery and lots of shade.

Great hike. Definitely not for beginners. Good hiking shoes are a must as the terrain is difficult at times and social distancing can be tricky when on single track. Gorgeous views!

Hike is definitely worth the views. Enjoyable and doable. Trees provide a lot of shade if needed.

This trail was extremely beautiful. I took a first date here and made the mistake of thinking it would be a nice little walk. Get ready to sweat and walk until your legs feel like noodles. I only went from point to point and it took around 4 or 5 hours to complete. We went in late summer so the waterfalls had dried up but there were tiny streams following the trails. Make sure to be prepared if going on this hike. Skipolinis pizza is in downtown Clayton and I recommend it for a well deserved reward afterwards.

The hike would have been good if the weather was great. But during the hot weekend we were just walking around all drained out! No waterfall to view! I had to take multiple breaks as all my energy was sucked out by the hot sun, no shades at all!

This is one of the trails you should only do in winter. We did it last saturday and the trail was hot as hell, there are shades but the dry air and slight elevation made up stop frequently for water breaks. There was one spot with a nice rock and shade, perfect for a lunch break but besides that the trail was pretty much just walking without views or waterfalls.

It’s an amazing experience and few slightly challenging spots but it’s really worth when we finally see water falls and drink that water . Beautiful views and worth the experience

It was a really beautiful trail but not for the faint of heart! You should be an experienced hiker to manage this!

Hiking

Nice hike. We got there at about 8:30 in the morning, so it wasn’t too hot or busy. We parked in the legal street parking area about 1/2 mile from the trailhead since we’d heard the lot is closed. Varied fauna and some late blooming wildflowers were nice. There is plenty of shade just when you need it. When the loop begins, bear to the left. You’ll hike up some gravel and rocks that are much easier to deal with going up instead of down.

Hiking

Early summer, hot and dry as expected. A lot of the loop is a walk on a wide, dusty road rather than a hike on a trail. Views are ok, trail conditions in spots were very slippery with scree, dust and loose gravel. The flora variability is cool to see. We’ll check it out in another season — the winter waterfalls and greener views are probably gorgeous.
