Minus one star for $10 parking fees. But other than that, an easy and lightly trafficked hike.
We did hostel trail to creek trail looping up toyon hill and back to hostel trail.

We started at the creek trail (not hostel) that goes along the creek where I saw families with kids playing the water. This part of the trail has a lot of shade and beautiful trees. The elevation gains steadily at beginning and then really picks up. Once at the top, there are signs to head to Black Mountain, also the trail section with no shade. We continued up and past the sign until we found the Hostel Trail (this took us a while as we were confused as to whether we were headed to Black Mountain instead, however there are definite signs for hostel trail once at the cross road). It was mostly downhill from there and we pretty much ran most of the trail till bottom. We also saw beautiful views of the valley in distance. This trail gave us a great workout!
