moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(1865)
Length: 2.4 mi • Est. 59 m
This route can be done in both directions. If done clockwise, it begins with some rock scrambling, though children will generally do ok with them. The scrambles are easier to go up than down, so clockwise is recommended. Trails are not always clearly marked at trail junctions, so following the map is recommended. Proper footwear is recommended. The rock scrambles may be difficult for some dogs.Show more

moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(720)
Length: 3.8 mi • Est. 2 h 20 m
This trail has lots of variation, elevation and vistas. Follow the white trail, then you will get to an intersection where both paths are blue. If going clockwise, follow the blue, to the left. After a half mile or so, the path will split to blue and white. At that point follow the white, to the right. Then when you get to the road, you’ll see signs for blue (and that’s when the rock stairs start). Finally you end up at the first intersection to get back to the parking lot on the white path. Offline map recommended. Users have reported that the trail is not marked well.Show more
