Nice, peaceful trail. Definitely rocky but worth the trek when you get to the ridge and are able to see the river.

The only bad thing about this trail is there is no shade.

Sunshiny, cold and windy today on the ridge. Beautiful views up and down the river. Trail was clear but soggy in places due to recent rain. Trail pretty rocky so we slowed our pace for safety. Probably best hiked in spring and fall. No shade. Well worth the effort.

The views from this Trailhead are spectacular. we went in springtime when there were tons of wildflowers. the scent from the flowers in the air was intoxicating. the Lookout Point is the prettiest view in this whole area in my opinion. this is my favorite Trailhead in the area thus far :)

Not a bad trail, but I would say it’s probably best in the spring before everything turns brown. We hiked at 9AM on a June day and it was already pretty hot and there is NO shade.

While most of the terrain is flat, there are a LOT of volcanic rocks sticking up several inches above the ground. My kids (and me too) kept tripping on them. I wouldn't recommend using this as a running trail. However, the scenery is beautiful and the Jedd's lookout is fantastic this time of year! This loop also connects to a trail leading to Bend Ferry Rd.

Super easy trail to walk / run on. Once you get about 2 miles out, you will overlook the Sacramento River with a stunning view. Highly recommend.
