The first mile or so is seriously up and down, trail traverses small mountain halfway up, mountain has many washes, thus the up and down. Good workout, but view is mostly of unattractive houses. To avoid this part and to invest your time, energy, and water into the climb up to the saddle between mountains, the "loop" part, instead of turning into the trailhead parking, take the next right, follow this road to a large parking area at the base of the large wash between the hills. Obvious large trail. This is also where the hike gets pretty.
Lots of varied scat suggests that hiking at sunrise or dusk might allow you to see various critters.

Nice workout. A lot if hills! Trail starts to get confusing when you reach the “loop” section. Looked overgrown. We ended up turning around and heading back. It was okay. Clean and quiet.

Good to hike, bike, jog, or horse ride. No strenuous elevations. Smooth.

Great hike. Had more ups and downs than we expected but we liked that. Beautiful and remote. We did the loop which was a highlight but the trail is not marked as well as the rest. Not sure I’d do it during snake season! This is a new favorite.

Great hike! The loop part was an interesting hike. The trail is closer to 6.0 miles, though and not 5.4. Planning on taking my husband.
