It was a great hike with a lot of incline! The scenery is amazing once you get on top of the hill. The only down side is there are no restrooms around!! Other than that it was a well worth it hike and would defiantly hike it again!!

Perfect distance to train for a 10K. Has challenging Hills and numerous sections on which to practice downhill running. Gets hot during the summer so bring plenty of water to hydrate. Plenty of parking and clean bathrooms.

This trail was decent. Too crowded for my liking. Lots of other hikers, bikers and dogs. Lots of sharp inclines. Had to turn around after two miles because I had terrible blisters so I never got to complete it.
