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.

Ouch. This baby doesn't even ease you in. It was just straight up! Well it felt like it to this out of shape girl. We followed the paved path so we didn't get to do the actual loop. Great workout and leg burn of your just trying to get into shape from the couch.

it is a nice trail and walking it counter clockwise is the best. You can walk up to the towers and back but we took the loop.

Paved the whole way up. Popular trail. Pretty good workout and great views of the city. People are pretty good to it and don't trash it very much. Popular hike with dogs
