Fun hike with friends and dog, easy trail to follow with some nice views along the way and at the top. There’s also a swing near the top! Just wish the local teenagers would pick up their garbage. And for people to follow the leash laws...

Rattlesnakes out. Needed the app to find the path. Plenty of trails that lead nowhere.

Nice easy trail - I’m new to hiking and had no issues. The trail has cattle in the area, we didn’t see any this morning but hoof marks and cow pies every where tell you they are around. There were some pretty muddy spots along the trail but not to horrible and a couple rocky areas. Good views from the top and cool boulders along the 400 foot or so climb.

Very nice views. Lots of cow post-holes so need to take it slower on some sections. Great hike with the pup for sure.

Nice place for a casual walk with my dog, but nothing worth going out of your way for. Basically, it’s a hike through a cow pasture, so be prepared for thick, gooey mud.

If you are hiking with a dog, make sure they are on leash please! Several off leash dogs in the trail, including one who’s owner was paying no attention as I had to physically pull it away from trying to attack our dog. Trail is steep, deep holes since it’s a cow pasture. Be sure to watch your step. Gorgeous 360 views at the top. Be sure to spend some time on the swing if you can! A Boy Scout eagle project, it’s nice and secure and makes for beautiful views
