A pleasant loop trail that up to Garin peak at 948 ft. Enjoy scenic vistas and hike through a variety of ecological zones. Don't forget to take the kids to the Garin Barn Visitor Center which has a working blacksmith shop

Fun hike. Very easy with little elevation change. As the name implies, a creek ran through a lot of the trail There was even a section where you had to cross it to continue.

Great views from the tops of the hills. The only issue would be cow pies. Lots of cow pies.

Pretty nice trail, the road is unpaved, so you shoes will get really dirty and heavy by stick with wet clay. And for me, I don't think it is moderate, pretty easy to finished.

The area was really pretty and green after all the recent rain. It was quiet and had lots of different views. There wasn't a lot of signage or maps to the entrance of the trail.

Nice views on the 6 mile High Ridge trail. Decent climb. Ran into some cows. $5 parking but so many trails you can spend the whole day there. Dog friendly.
