Hiked this trail in early July with my husband who walks with a cane. Chose it due to its great reviews and ‘easy’ rating. Bad choice. First, the listed length of 2.1 miles is only correct if you take the connector trail between the lower and upper paths. The whole loop as shown on AllTrails is easily another mile or more. Second, there is significant elevation change and parts of the trail were quite steep and difficult for my husband to manage. Also narrow and overgrown with weeds including poison oak. A few nice views but mostly dense forest, which at least provides plenty of shade. The only bench we found was close to the parking area. It was pretty challenging for my husband, and I would rate the difficulty as moderate, not easy. We returned to find our car broken into, rear and passenger windows smashed. No valuables stolen except my husband’s thrift store jacket and a bag of used books. All in all a disappointing experience.
