This is one of our favorite trails to take when we haven’t hiked in a while and need to take it fairly easy. Usually a group of three of us go, and we park one car at the North Trailhead and ride together to the overlook on the way up to Peavine Falls trailhead so we can hike one-way instead of the loop. There are a few small hills, but nothing bad. It can get tricky due to big chunks of gravel at some spots so you need to watch your step or you’ll trip. If it has rained an unusually large amount, you’re going to get your feet and possibly your legs wet crossing several places. If it’s summer and it’s hot and there isn’t a breeze, keep moving because there is one spot at the highest altitude where you’ll always have a breeze. This is a great place to stop and eat a snack.
