Great loop for an easy walk not far out of the city.

I went off trail towards the end but I started from Mt Woodson trailhead. It was a nice hike, I went counter clockwise...started off with a nice incline and ended with an incline. Good workout with my kiddo on my back. Enjoyed the views and not too many people :)

More of an easy to moderate hike since there’s a couple of inclines. Nice scenery and birds.

Easy to moderate trail, the only rough part imo is the paved steep portion up to Ramona Dam but it’s worth the effort.

HikingFeeGreat!No shade

Great trail, well maintained, very populated, but definitely not easy!! It may be easy for some, but it has many steep sections, a lot of steep ups and downs. I would note this as moderate, given the elevation gains.
