Trails are fairly narrow, and all seem to be two-way. Passed more people than I expected, some unmasked. I actually finished back at the parking lot, but Alltrails bricked my phone at the point where the recording shows I stopped...

Great hike! Did it counter clockwise and a good mix of elevation changes. Started at 8am and the trail was empty. Partly shaded.

Day after a rainy day, so many waterfalls throughout! So beautiful. Definitely muddy in certain areas but not terrible.

Sunday 1/17 @9:45am - Parking lot was full. Busy but not crowded. Return around 12 was crowded. A fun section with rocks uphill and madrone trees. Old mine building at the top was cool.

Beautiful trail, moderate, with some good inclines. Forgot to restart my tracking but definitely about 5.7 miles

Went clockwise versus counter clockwise and the pupper was not into so much incline but we made it. It’s a great work out either way!

Very good morning hike. 80% shaded. But, it is exposed when the real elevation gain happens. Avoid that one mile in the middle of the day. Else really liked the small uphills and downhills throughout the hike. Ample parking.

HikingGreat!

Fantastic trail. Moderate difficulty. Not difficult to navigate. About 80% shaded. The first half of the loop was the difficult part, the second half was mostly level and easy. Lots of parking. Not too crowded

Decent shade through the hike. Lots of elevation changes both up and down, so I’d say it’s a moderate trail. No real good views at the top, but there is a nice place to sit at a picnic table about 1/2 way through the hike with a nice view.

HikingGreat!Private property

My friend named Kyle couldn't make it to the top. It was a very unfortunate experience and my friend was extremely disappointed about his physical ability. The trail might have given him depression which caused emotional problems accompanied with his physical problem previously.

The elevation of this hike is incorrectly marked according to my Apple Watch. I clocked it at 1141. Good hike- just not as steep as I was expecting.
