Can be hot. Take plenty of water and be ready to Hike A Bike in some sections, particularly the powerline at the end. Also, where the trail cross under the highway, this is a riparian area and the creekbed is EXTREMELY slippery! Cross on foot below the low water crossing on the rocks.

This is less of a hike and more of an aggressive walk. It’s terribly boring and we just kept going hoping it would get better. It didn’t. Part of the trail has you walk through the middle of a subdivision. I don’t go hiking to walk through neighborhoods. Do not recommend.

This trail is not well marked! If you follow the trail on All trails, trails to no where, trails fork off and instead of 9.5 miles we wind up doing 12 miles. This trail was not enjoyable as a whole, but there where parts of the trail very nice! Will not do this trail again.

Challenging distance with some good hills, and this rainy season produced lots of wild flowers.
