This was a great hike for us as relative beginners - a great mix of incline and flat all the way through to keep us challenged and beautiful views.

done this trail a few times, its very rocky but should be easy enough for most kids, there are a few inclines, but a decent walk

I consider this a little easier than moderate. Nice little walk. Thank goodness I have the AllTrail app or would have taken multiple wrong turns.

Loved this trail! The other one at this location was straight up and super Rocky so about half way up we decided to come down and do this one. It was great! Definitely on the easy side of moderate.

Nice hike, a little crowded with a few really narrow spots on the trail.

This is a nice walking trail but where we went stay around the base of the hill.

I took my time and stopped many times with my 2 small dogs. Since there isn’t any shade they get tired easily. Nice hike. Oh, I accidentally took a trail almost up to the summit when I was just trying to do the circumference so that def took us off pace. Rocky, wildflowers.

Great trail with various views of the city nearby. Well marked and not very crowded.

Really nice easy hike. Not well marked, had to use the map in here to guide myself. Really rocky, took my small dog and did good on the terrain. It’s so rocky it will probably take around 1 hour to complete a 2.2 mile hike. What I liked the most is that you barely see any cactus.

We were in the area for the day and decided to complete this hike. It was very enjoyable, low traffic on a Friday. Great views as you are slightly up above roof level without a huge hike uphill. Some areas were slightly rocky, however still a moderate hike. Would come back.

Great sunrise views over the peaks. Some great glimpses into downtown on the southern side. Lots of quail to greet you. A great hidden gem in the middle of urban sprawl.

What a nice trail. A bit rocky in spots and you never lose site of civilization but it’s a good hike. Took the dog and she did good too. Never got confused on the trail, the 308 is marked well.
