Took the Cub scouts on this hike, if 6-9 year old can do it, so can you.

Great open hike with only two moderate elevation changes. I took my dog who loved smelling all the desert creosote and sage (bee careful of the bees on the sage!). Nice covered rest area about half way thru. Careful of broken glass by the tables if you have a dog with you. Nice views. Went around noon on a Tuesday, mid-May and only passed four groups total. Although it's only a short distance, you'll need more water than you think! I should add that I am a beginner:)

Went nice and early. Dealt with lots of passing bikers--they were nice, just frequent.
