Great trail,, not a hard just going down and back up is some areas. Great views,, saw my first rattle snake.. aaaaand we turn around from that point since the trail was covered with ferns ahead of that and didn't want to take the chance of stepping on a snake!! crazy!!

Love this trail! There is an abandoned airplane a decent way in and a cute spring. Great to bring your dog on too.

Really loved this hike. We took our two kids and our dog. It was just a little steep but it was a gorgeous hike.

Beautiful views the whole way. Steep-ish trail down. Remember on the way down, you must go back up.
