It was my 1st hiking here. It was a nice hike! The views are beautiful! Just make sure to take water since it’s been/going to be hot. There is no shade. Try to get here early for parking. The hike is a little more the 5 miles but overall not a bad hike.

This is always a great trail but thats why it is always crowded too. Get there early (like 6am) to get a spot in the two parking lots or you will have to park about a mile away. Right now the rangers are forcing hikers to do a counter clockwise loop to keep people from passing each other so much.

I love this trail for endurance training. First two miles are a slow incline and the last two are decline. Pros: Fun Trail, easy to follow, lots of mile markers and porta potties for people to use. Cons: Too many people. Crowded on weekends. General hiking/life tip: If you are extremely slow or out of shape, it’s ok. Just stay to the right of the path so people can pass on the left. It’s so annoying when you walk right down the middle and are completely oblivious. Thanks!

Fun but difficult trail currently my favorite hike. It’s about 4 miles and very steep.

Completed this one today. Excellent trail. Would be a fairly steep and difficult climb for beginner mountain bikers. The views are good. Starts with some good moderate dense forests and eventually opens up into steep tracks. The dirt road is pretty wide and accomodates hikers in groups too. Foot traffic was heavy even around 7-7:30 am. It said masks required at the base of the trail by the parking lots but a good amount of hikers weren’t wearing one. But a mask is definitely recommended. One star missing as the view wasn’t as breathtaking as anticipated.

Nice trail and never gets me bored...done twice already and will keep coming but one thing I noticed .... some people with dogs they let the dog unleashed and some dog Pooh today....hope these people can be given a ticket...it’s dangerous when you unleash the dogs especially on summer .... the lady in blue tights with a black dog doesn’t even care that she is jogging and her dog is unleash ... wish they will implement a strict policy and hopefully some RANGERs can drive and walk around to catch these people...

Nice, easy trail. Rangers were helpful with the busy parking lot in the morning. $7 for parking in the morning on Saturday, but it gets cheaper in the afternoon. The trail was quite busy, but they’re requiring hikers to go one way around the loop (counter clockwise) so it makes the crowds seem a bit better. Also requiring masks.

I love this hike. Super close to home. Parking is $5 and they are constantly doing Fire work there so there are days where I will go and without notice it is closed for a couple of days.

Love most of it! A quick workout ...... now they require masks and that you go 1 way....they even discourage you going to the connected trail..... seems petty !

I enjoyed this trail. You can hike, bike and even bring ur pet (on a leash). There’s two parking lots ($5) and there’s portable toilets at the beginning of the trail and towards the middle. As of today June 2020, masks are required. U can take it off and only put it on when around strangers or at the parking lot. I’d suggest that if u plan on bringing music. Wear headphones as a courtesy to others who hike to enjoy nature and its sounds.

Other than the fact that masks are required, this is a great hike. Good workout and also scenic.
