Very nice hike at sunset and full moon tonight. During the 9pm descent, we heard western kingbirds twittering and repeated common poorwills classic nocturnal calls

Really enjoyed this trail. Steady incline in the form of switchbacks. Benches at the end/start every switchback which is nice. Not too many people while I was there (Friday afternoon). Saw more people starting when I was finishing. Definitely would recommend!

Nicely graded trail. About 29 feet of mud from snow run off. Plenty of picnic tables along the trail to rest, if needed. Glad I did this before it’s hot, as there is no shade.

Good trail with nice views. gradually builds in incline so it’s not too intense.

Good trail for a quick in town hike. Intense climb on the way up and quick descent on the way down. Took us about an hour and a half to do the entire trail out and back. Some mud but nothing unmanageable. I wore my heavy duty hiking boots in anticipation of a rough and muddy trail and could’ve comfortably worn my trail runners. No shade but that’s the be expected. Nice on a warm, winter day.

Nice wide trail. Seriously muddy in a couple places, but manageable. Scenic view at the top. Lovely little hike with the pups.

Soooo muddy!!! It’s sticky and thick, felt like I was walking/running on moon shoes. This is normally my favorite. Bummed I had to turn back.
