Go in the morning to get some shade from the mountains. We went off trail a bit and stopped a lot to take in the view. Great trail!

Nice trail. Bit too crowded and boring at the start, but the end is worth it. Make sure to bring cash as you need to self-pay $7 to get in (although most people did not seem to care about that). Parking is limited and fills up quickly.

This was a great hike to take after being away from doing any sort of outdoor exercise in 10 years. It is a beautiful and well maintained trail

1-5-20. Nice easy sunrise hike with my hiking group! Trails well maintained, washrooms on site with $7.00 cash parking fee! Not very scenic, but great for beginners! Enjoy!

Excellent trail. Wide, easy to follow, gentle incline, well groomed, perfect leisurely hike where you also get a good workout in. Beautiful scenery. Some people but not too populated. Options to join other trails if you'd like more of a challenge or a longer hike. Out and back, or you can take a connecting trail to loop back to the parking lot. Delightful and just right!
