Great walk in the park. Not as strenuous as people made out to be.

Deceptively long trail. Lots of false ends. That being said, it’s a beautiful and varied terrain. Make sure to do Mastodon Peak on the way if you have time! Only 1.4 miles extra round trip.

Beautiful the whole way with boulders and flora. Gentle incline until the end where it gets steep. Somewhat peopled, but not crowded. Views much of the way. I enjoyed this hike more than I thought I would.
