This trail is seasonal because you have to cross the creek. Be sure to double check their website to verify before you go. It is a very well-maintained trail dotted with charming bridges. The trail is mostly uphill with switchbacks. There is a gate near the top that expressly prohibits mountain bikes from reaching the summit. The summit affords a nice view of Atascadero.

The parking lot is difficult to find. There is another entrance that people are not encouraged to use. It is directly off of highway 41 just outside of Atascadero. Parking there requires that you cross the highway. At this entrance you will not hike the entire trail. I recommend starting at the trailhead.
