Great hike! Not as heavily trafficked as Hulls or Military Reserve, which was nice. Decent, slow climb and great views. It's also nice that you can half the loop for if need be. Don't recommend in the wind though, which was brutal today.

As someone who doesn't normally like foothill-trails or hiking without trees or water, this was a GREAT hike even without these factors. Didn't even notice any elevation gain because it was so gradual the whole time, beautiful wildflowers, GORGEOUS views of the Valley and both mountain ranges. One of the best hikes below the tree line.

Loved this trail!! A friend suggested it as a good vantage point to see the city below and sunrise and it did not disappoint! I cut across on Doe Ridge Trail to make sure I was on top for the sunrise and then came down the other side of the loop. Very easy hike even with the snow.
I will definitely be back!
