The main trail entrance is on side of the Vons. It is a pretty tough hill to get up because of how long it is. After the main hill which loopes around above Wal-Mart the trail levels out and is much easier. There are some awesome views up there. Dogs are allowed and it is a great place to mountain bike if you can get up the hill. The landscape is really nice.

Usually I don't like to drive a long way for a short hike. But this is so pretty in glad I did. This place is so beautiful. I'm coming back to see it in the spring! Overcast day and it was still amazing.

Nice little trail with views though i'm not a fan of narrow trails because of snakes! lol. All in all it was a neat well maintained trail.
