Much cooler after last night’s rain. Lots and lots of mountain bikers out there — keep your eyes and ears peeled!

With overall elevation and distance in the moderate range, this trail combo is approachable for so many skill levels and interests. If you have an extra 15 minutes, it’s worth hitting the second summit, as well. Started almost at sunset to avoid higher temps and made for a pretty evening nearly alone on the trail.

I really like this trail. Not very rocky and quite smooth which I like!

Good short hike. Moderate trail. Good views. The last little bit to the ridge back overlook definitely gets your heart rate going.

Comfortable hike with some elevation changes but very manageable for a couple of leisurely hikers. Sunrise and views were appreciated.

First to Review

Ridge and especially the last 1/4 mile to the top overlook are challenging to ride up. Good cardio required and you might have to walk your bike over a couple of the sections where the trail is very narrow and some flat face rocks are on the trail.
