Did this hike for the first time this week and went counter clock wise. It started out steep and leveled out before declining. The trail seems well maintained and beautiful, sweeping, desert views. Will for sure be returning :)

Good trail for a bit of exercise. Good views of the surrounding area. We did the hike counter-clockwise and found a lot of loose shale on the trail coming down. If I did it again I’d probably do it cw.

Excellent hike if you only have couple hours available. Great for cardio workout going counterclockwise and offers nice mountain and valley views.

A great afternoon hike, took us about 1 hr 45 min to do the full loop. Beautiful views and a quiet trail - very peaceful.
