It's a challenge for a kid. Took my 9 year old and went to the left about 9 am. Took about 3 hours with plenty of stops in 92 degree heat for the 5 mile hike. Manageable if you like heat and climbing. Some rattlesnakes but other than that nice workout. Left side is steeper than right side, benches in left side about mile 1.5 up no shade and all along which is cool but little shade. Road is decent no major rocks. We took about 50-60 ounces of water and came back with nothing, remember a 9 year old. 2 bathrooms stalls about 2-3 miles apart. Parking is $5 per weekend 4 hours, $3 weekdays, pay and slide the ticket over your dash. This is for people with some hiking experience or endurance. Dogs and bikes are welcomed. Sunblock, water, and a good hat... a small hand towel won't hurt either for sweat.

Great for a morning or sunset hike. Great views. Only downside is very limited parking when busy which is often.

Me and my buddy mainly use this trail for weekly running as its kind of short for experienced hikers but still good for newcomers. Mixed crowd age wise. Watch out for the old timers flying downhill on their bikes though.

Most Awesome Hiking Trip In A While!

It's a calm and relaxed hike.. It's one that can be jogged with no issues and I enjoyed some of the off path hills along the way. Was able to get a decent workout by taking some of the steeper inclines off the path. 5 bucks for parking on Saturday and Sunday but not bad overall.
