Great trail, but I wish I would have known how steep and Rocky the uphill climb was. Despite all the surprise climbing we did as beginners it was a great experience and highly recommend it! Be ready for uphill uphill uphill!

I would recommend this back trail for anyone looking for a little terrain action. Once you get past the loose rock, the hike becomes more paved.

A lot of fire roads and urban views. Seems like a favorite for trail running and those who seek flatter terrain. Loose rocks on the way down (going counter clockwise) could be a challenge for some.

Good trail, a bit rocky but a nice fairly even incline with a few level spots for a break. great views in all directions. watch for rattle snakes right off the trail!

First to Review

It’s a good workout starting from the back! The first 1.5 miles were Rocky’s and steep but it’s a great workout. I would be careful bringing dogs if they are beginner hikers
