We did the 2 mi loop and I would not call it easy! We went on a cool fall day and it was pleasant. Not one for a hot sunny day, as there is no shade. Nice views, watch your footing!

Haven't concurred the whole thing yet but I've been dreaming about it for months. It's just too hot out there. It was absolutely gorgeous when I went last in March, I'm waiting for it to cool down a bit before I do it again.

Excellent location for a hike, jog, hill climbing with spectacular vistas of Hart Park, Kern River / Canyon, Sierra Nevadas: Bear Mountain, Tehachapis, Greenhorn Mountains. A true outdoor activities gem.

Nice hike with beautiful views. the park portion is a bit too busy for my liking but then again it IS a park. I would do this easy walk again with my dogs
