After a short hike at the Sears Kay Ruin, I was looking for a second hike in the area and decided to give this trail a try even though there were no written reviews or photos. I was not expecting much, so I was pleasantly surprised. To get to the trailhead, you have to drive about a mile on a dirt road in a residential area. There is no parking so I just parked on the side of the road. I would rate this hike as moderate since there are some lengthy inclines along the way. It seems that this trail is very lightly trafficked - no one else around and very desolate once you get away from the homes. Very nice views and a good workout. There is no shade at all, so bring plenty of water.
