Great trail... a bit challenging up the front but worth if for the down hill back side.

Business hike for locals, go on Wensday as the parking is free then.

Great trail with beautiful views at the top. Can't climb the rocks at the top Feb-June due to falcon breeding season, so just a heads up. For a better workout start the loop on the left, for a more leisure-based hike start the loop on the right.

One of my favorite trails! First trail I ever hiked as a kid and it's still my favorite.
