Always looking for dog-friendly hikes and this is a good one. Not long but you have good elevation gain. Halfway through you summit with 2 great views. At summit vista binoculars are stowed away for hikers to use (look for a green mailbox).

Warning: tricky to find trailhead!

Nice hike, lots of shade. Part of the hiking trail very narrow and lots of poison oak. Trails poorly marked. Yet the hike is basically up then down. Hard to get lost.

Unfortunately we did not see Samantha's comment below and followed our GPS directions which ended up at the gated and locked bridge. With no cell service we weren't able to check back to this site so no hike for us that day, but we'll try again another time.

Awesome hike. Steep at some points, but great view as a reward.

Great little hike. Thanks to Jeff, former forest kepper, in his honor suprises are left on trail. I got to enjoy little surprises on the way up and down the mountain too.

Great trail!

Your GPS will want you to cross a bridge to a gated yard, but keep going and look for address 806, which is a flower and packaging shop on the left about 5 minutes farther. You'll then follow signs for 809.

There is a portapotty at the parking lot.

The trail is great with a lot of side trails. I had a dog with me and she enjoyed climbing up and down the hills. I recommend checking out the vistas and White Redwood Trail while on this loop.

There are some very steep trails here!!
