More of a walk than a “hike”. I gave it 4 stars because it seems great for small kids (if you keep all the thorny things in mind), and because I liked the layout. The rocks completely lining the trail gave it a different feel than most trails in the area.

Very short and easy! Not much of a walk or hike but great views and area! I wouldn't do this trail again unless camping nearby but would definitely like to try other trails in the area.
Trailhead is easy to miss and between lots 35 & 37 across from lot 36.
