The first 3/4 mile on the fire road is fairly steep but when you get to the loop, it's very easy. It's also very shaded in the loop. I went counter clockwise and took every left. There seems to be some other adjoining trails. I hike with 2 smaller dogs and they picked up some small burs that stuck to them. Nothing too bad.

Was a little bit hilly at the first leg of the trip... Then opened up onto the shades trail.... About half way there was some more uphill calorie burning stairs...stairs and more stairs.... Then mostly low grade the rest of the hike... Beautiful views from the top!! Not too bad of a family hike !!
