Fun little hike. More fun in a clockwise direction I would say. Make sure you go all the way up to the summit. At the highest point, there is a .33 mile offshoot south that has a great view at the top.

Great workout. Brought a friend who hadn't hiked in a while and they didn't enjoy it as much as I did. Took the trail counterclockwise and struggled a little near the Vista trail. Full loop took about 2 hours with frequent stops. Only saw some lizards but the weather was perfect! Coming back after more conditioning!

We went clockwise on Turnbuckle, added the Valley Vista to the peak. The .33 miles to the peak is definitely worth the view. Saw a tortoise just leisurely walking the trail, which was a nice treat. If you go right after sunrise, you will have some shade for parts of the trail.
