The trail is definitely a moderately challenging trail. More challenging than I think "easy" suggests. There is no shade after the intersection with Black Berry trail.... So sunscreen up ! The next shade is nearly to the end of the trail. The last mile or so of my route was on the roadway, as opposed to being actual trail. All in all I enjoyed this hike. The views at the top are very nice. Do beware ticks ! I have done this trail twice and have seen ticks both times.

This trail was overgrown, ticks everywhere, and not that great. I got lost and couldn't even find my way to the trail for 20 minutes. Part of it was pretty. But I wouldn't say this is the best trail for Kids or animals.

Great trail with excellent views. Lots of elevation relief, we took the turkey trail up to high ridge, lots of poison oak on that spur so be careful. I would not recommend small children or small dogs, total loop we took was 5.2 miles

We started at the parking area at Lopez lake and took the Turkey Ridge Trail which meets up with the High Ridge trail. This added a little mileage, and was a nice shady start to the hike. Lots of fossils of shells, and great view.

Great for kids, easy with good views

There is no Routzhan Park, it was drowned by Lopez Reservoir 50 years ago. The correct park name would be Lopez Lake Park.

Little difficult to find the trailhead. It's marked with a rusted steel gate. Some good hill climbs, with a nice breeze.

We did the whole Duna Vista loop. took us about 5 hours with short breaks here and there. seems longer than 7 miles on foot. We started from the the end of high mountain rd in lopez. Great way to burn some calories for the day.
