I was confused by two Mule Deer trails , I thought it was loop. Very pretty trail.. but , I had to walk back to the car on the road and that sucked!

Easy hike. Enjoyed the scenery.

This hike is a long one but you can do it in shorter segments. The views from near the top of the hills are beautiful. However the flatter portions have a lot of horse droppings on them. It's a nice Trail with a mild elevation gain.

Maybe I am a little spoiled when it comes to scenery, but I can give this trail only an average.
