This is a very good hike if you are not looking to kill yourself going up and down. The first 9/10's of a mile is a climb, however, the balance is either downhill or level.

My golden retriever and I hiked it earlier today. There was a little water in some of the washes about 2.5 miles in. The hike starts off with a little greenery at Molino Basin, but quickly turns to tall grass and desert. It is very easy to navigate. Never saw any other hikers, however, we were surprised by a couple of Mountain Bikers.

About 3.3 miles in, we connected to the Milagrosa Canyon Trail that ended at Wentworth and Horsehead. We were then picked up and brought back to Molino Basin.
