It was a really nice hike a little steep at times. Make sure you wear shoes with a grip as I slid down a few times on my way back. I will be back soon

Has some great vistas, but can hear highway noise in the distance and can see it at some points. If you live close though it’s a nice workout if you combine with the fire roads that extend off of this trail.

Short and steep. Nice views from the top of the old Melody Ranch western movie set.

My parents, my 7 year old and I did this trail. We are beginners at hiking and although the uphill made us take a few breaks, it was very doable. Once you get closer to the top the trail does get rocky and slipper but other than that the trail seemed well maintained.

Short hike but tough hike.

Short but hard if you want a nice view you can go past the final incline and continue to the fire road which I prefer. Then you can continue on he fire road but it’s a much sharper incline. I tried since the lower easy trails were closed.

A mildly challenging hike (my 2 year old climbed 3/4ths of it without help). However, it is short and the last peak of the hike is overgrown.

Definitely not an easy hike. Very rocky, hot, and the elevation can be intense at times. Worth it for the beautiful views, highly recommend! Bring plenty of water though!
