Love this hike! I've been hiking nearly everyday for the past few months, never gets boring!

Nice paved trail for the family. Always crowded with kids and people with pets. The parking lot is small and the pavement is very bad near the top so be careful if you go at night without a light.

I love this trail due to convenience. It's easy to travel on if you go up the paved sections. The inclines are steep in parts, good heart-rate inducing percentages, a real good workout, especially if you jog or run up those steep parts, or do the trail a couple of times. Nice views, nice people, can get crowded, especially the parking lot to the paved entrance.

The bigger parking lot starts off as a rocky trail which leads you up to the paved portion, that section is fun and a great starter.
