Map on site not correct (if we followed what was there we would have gone on Gold Mine trail which is extremely difficult and steep). Liked the hike however surprised that it was an incline all the way until we decided to turn around (1.7 miles into the hike)

Very nice trail. Well maintained. It wasn't challenging so I could take my mother with me but was still a good walk we could both enjoy. The desert was blooming with beautiful flowers. There are other trails that connect to this trail if you want to extend and do more. Mountain bikers and hikers can share the trail easily, and everyone was very friendly along the hike.
