This trail is probably a lot of fun to run up hill of you're in good shape. I'm getting there so I ran part of it and as long as you pace yourself, it's a fun hike/run. I saw two rattlers and many, many flies. I did it in about an hour and a half because I stopped to take a lot of pictures.

A couple of steep sections near the beginning is followed by easy, pleasant hiking through boulder strewn landscape. There is a scenic lookout at the top. If the parking lot is full, there is a $5 lot adjacent to it.

Steep incline at the start of the boulder loop but well worth the effort. Amazing views from the top and nice flat portion around the summit. Steep decline as well with a rocky path so watch your step

Covered in dog shit, but otherwise great hike! good boulders to play on in the middle to break up the hike

This was a fun challenging run for being 4 miles. Lots of uphill and just when I thought I had done enough and was starting to go downhill I started back up again. In all it wasn’t just 4 miles but also the equivalent of climbing 40+ flights of stairs

Much harder then the reviews led us to believe but my husband and I found the surrounding nature to be worth the effort! LOTS of incline but it was so beautiful and peaceful

We started on the Boulder Loop and took the ridge short cut across which was EXCELLENT for our teens that like to climb up boulders. Lots to climb on and great views!!
