Take lots of water. We hiked during the heat of the day. Recommend early or later in the day. Not marked very well. We went an extra section and had to back track. River is dry.

More of an easy on moderate side and not quite 3 miles due to bridge that crosses the water below is missing so you cannot get across to the forest trail. Beautiful flowers, butterflies, just a gorgeous trail. Overgrown in some areas. Loved it for a close to home quick and easy hike.

Beautiful trail this time of year, with numerous patches of wildflowers and as many butterflies as I've seen on one hike. Moderate level listed here is fair, with most of the strenuous steps on the way back. Trail is somewhat overgrown in areas and rarely completely flat, so your ankles get a good workout. I took a quick drone shot of the beginning of the trail. The canyon behind me is where the trail takes you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UlO8FnEOVQ

Gorgeous hike in mid March after a rainy winter. Green hills dotted with purple lupines and golden poppies along a gently flowing creek. Not too difficult; we went with our kids. We saw about 20 people over the course of the hike, mostly during the first mile.
