Fun and a great workout. Wear lots of sunscreen, it’s very exposed. I brought my 3 year old and he loved it but unless your kids are used to it I definitely wouldn’t as it gets very steep and challenging at points.

Very exposed trail – be aware during summer time – there is very little shade for most of the way, and only creek water. I didn’t have that much problem with hoof tracks – but horses do use this trail.

Much of the trail is thrashed from horses. Wish I had worn boots instead of trail shoes.

Start early so you have plenty of time to explore the creek and beat some of the heat. Very exposed to sun. Definitely challenging on the way back.

I did this hike before going to work one spring day ( I did not realize I could wright a review or I would have done it on the day of the hike) ......let me just say this......It was a nice spring walk that I figured would not take me more than a few hrs to complete I was right but I did not figure on all the hills and valleys that I would be going up and I paid for it that night at work....all in all it was a great trail well packed and not very rocky I did not see any elk that day nor for that mater any other animals although I am told there are some to be seen up there I guess you get luck when you get lucky....I did get to see awesome views and beautiful oaks. I would do it again maybe wait just a few more weeks and let the wild flowers be at top bloom. Happy Hiking!
