If you're reasonably fit, this is more like a "6" with 10 being the hardest. The top is a little anti-climatic if you're hoping to end with amazing views. All we found was a sign. But the views are incredible and it's become a favorite.
Fun trail! The only thing is that it's never ending.
This was a nice walk. There is a beautiful stream and at the moment loads of California Poppies on the hillside. I would rate this a 3 or 4 out of 10 for difficulty. Very clear path with few rocks.
went to hike at dripping springs today 3/23/17 with my boyfriend and my 2 dogs and it was absolutely beautiful. very good hike, on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being super easy and 10 being super exhausted after being on it for a little bit, I would give it a 7 1/2. just because it is a 13 mile hike and not necessarily the incline, which there is for sure, but it goes on and on and every part of it is beautiful. Enjoy the hike! Dogs are welcome. Bring lots of water. Kids are welcome for the most part.
Beautiful! The trail is full of poppies
