Loved this trail! It was nice to get out after several weeks of rain.. and the trail was beautifully kept. It's a great balance of hills, flat, and downhill terrain so it can work for all ages.
Great 11 miler. Beautiful
go clockwise and you'll appreciate it. it has some very steep inclines. county vector control was out while we were hiking and showed us why you should put on deet before hiking. their is high probability of lime disease ticks. this is always a risk.
this is a good trail and some decent views. a great workout.
The trail was great!!! The longest hike I've done by far but not too difficult. The scenery was so pretty and the smells of all the different flowers was wonderful. There were more bikers than hikers...I'd like to try that next time. It was very helpful to have the gps tracking with the map...there were a couple times where I wasn't 100% certain which way to go and it really came in handy. I will be doing this trail again!
Lovely! I would go clockwise. We went counter clockwise and the climbs at the end were rough. This trail goes through pine ridges, oak meadows, and seasonal creeks. The meadows are beautiful and green this time of year. The poison oak was low, and the recent rain kept the dust down. A beautiful hike in the foothills.
Great workout good trail markers one of the better trails in the canyon , all the bikers and runners sharing the trail were friendly . I think going counter-clockwise is key for hiking
