Beautiful and vigorous trail. First 1.5 miles are straight uphill without a break. Gorgeous views of the surrounding hills and Sierra Buttes. Not sure where the 12.7 mile estimate is coming from, though. 9.5 miles from parking lot to Hall's Ranch. Definitely a hike I will be repeating.
absolutely breathtaking hike.
