This is a great trail to run on as it is wide and has moderate traffic, which makes it safe for lone trail runners. I only gave it 3 stars because it isn't the most scenic. The several large, buzzing electrical towers throughout the trail remind you that you are not quite in "nature." There also isn't much shade throughout most of the hike as there are few trees, mostly just tall dry grass and some wild flowers.

My 7 year old son and I embarked on this adventure on a whim. It was his first hike and he loved it so much, he begged me to come back sometime soon. The views were incredible, the fellow hikers were very friendly, and we were lucky enough to see a rattlesnake! That, plus being able to see our house from the top, was probably the highlight of the hike. What a wonderful experience, and we will definitely be back.
