Great trail and a great workout! there's no shade, and I did see a rattlesnake, so just be careful, but it is a great hike!

Nice terrain. If you take a right about a half mile in there is a more shaded an private route.
The views were beautiful at the very top. You can spot a few lakes! Very beautiful walk. About 2-2.5 hours roundtrip.
