Beautiful wildflowers and very peaceful once you climb above the highway. Nice trail with frequent shade. Great spring hike!

It was a little hard to find at first. If you are afraid of heights you may want to reconsider this hike. It’s a very narrow trail on a steep mountainside. You can see the road and the river most of the time.
