nice climb with beautiful views and pretty wildflowers. Plenty of sun exposure but air temps are perfect this time of year. My gps clocked it in at 6.6 miles though.

One of my favorites. Great morning hike. The rattlesnake I saw was good at letting me know he was there and we both quickly took off.

The trail was fairly steep going up and down. I would definitely recommend hiking poles for going down the switchbacks. We also ran into 2 rattle snakes so would recommend being cautious. I was in a large group (22) so the snakes did not bother us. Just back up slowly if you encounter one and let it move on it's own do not provoke them.

Absolutely beautiful when you get to the top. This is a hiking trail, it would not be good for trail running. Go early, not a lot of shade on this one.

Good hike when lower elevation is in a heat wave, although not shaded most of the trail. Watch out for cows! The bridge nearing the sawmill was broken, but you can still walk across if you are careful.

Honestly, the place isn't that hard to find. You can drive up the dirt road and park near the entrance of the National Forest. Or you can park at Mack Park and just walk/bike/run up the road which never hurt anybody. The river is beautiful and it made for an awesome trail run.

Really pretty loop. There's no clear destination point if you're into that. Being up there on the ridge is amazing though. I recommend starting on the south end of the loop. The north end is way more steep. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the wind caves on the other side of the canyon. Not too heavily trafficked.

what a Hike with a great view, A hike I would do again.
