Cannot recommend this trail. It is within an active hunting area and some of the activity is very close. You could literally see the hunters shooting from their trucks when we were there on a Sunday morning. We turned back after an hour because we felt unsafe as the bullets were flying by in close proximity. Hard to believe that this is designated as a public hiking trail.

This was a really pleasant, easy-moderate hike. The trail is a gravel road much of the way and is well signed so easy to follow. It has numerous grade breaks and snakes around so you are not looking straight up your ascent, like another nearby hike. The trail starts in open meadow grasslands with broad views and transitions to scrub forest and then goes above treeline with low shrubs. Lots and lots of birds, short-eared owls, grouse and pheasant. We saw wild pigs and mongoose. With the elevation, it was a pleasant temperature on this quiet Monday morning hike. Highly recommend.

Nice trail. Only thing is that as it is in a recreation area, you’ve got buggies with you for part of your hike.. On the top, scenery is nice. Easy trail, no difficulties.

Good trail. Nice vistas on a clear day. Got cold fast after the sun went down. Advise you wear bright colors as it’s a hunting area too.
