A good quick trail, with plenty of sun and no other people as far as we saw! a little precarious because of river rocks that litter the trail, and pretty steep depending on which way you start the loop, but good exercise!

Nice trail, lots of wildlife sign. Deer, bird and lion sign. It was steep on the first half and easy on the way down, good for a workout.

It's a nice hike if you just feel like something quick and easy, it has great views and some beautiful plants to look at, especially during the spring when the wild flowers blossom. You will usually see wild rosemary, sage and cacti to name just a few. There are other hikes nearby if you feel like continuing on.

A short hike that is best done in the spring after the first spring rains when all the wildflowers are blooming. The trail is close to the 241 toll road so the road noise from passing vehicles is constant. Watch for rattlesnakes.
