Beautiful trail. Come early as there is limited parking. Nice back side view of Colima. Be prepared to hit many inclines. Cheers!

Ran into only two friendly joggers. Very peaceful, quiet trail. Uphill towards the end, but the downhill on the way back gives you an easy pace of speed to enjoy the hills. Saw tons of different lizards and some squirrels and a few bunnies. Great little hike under Colima and back

This is a fun little hike up off of Colima. It takes you through a tunnel that goes under Colima and there's some really nice scenery on the trail. Saw a few jack rabbits and plenty of birds, definitely a nice nature walk. Some mild inclines but definitely suitable for beginners. Would hike it again for sure.
