Started at 6am on a beautiful Sunday, the earlier you come, the better. Less people earlier. Gets crowded around 10am.

Nice trail, but very crowded mid-afternoon. The elevation change is all at the beginning of the trail, so going down at the beginning and coming up at the end. Several creek crossings that are easy; my husband was able to carry our smallish dog over them. Only downside is the number of people who are playing their music loud as they're hiking; really disrupts the quiet that is present when no music is playing. Don't know why people go for a hike it it's not to enjoy the surroundings. And frankly, it's rude to the rest of the hikers. As we were finishing the hike, going back uphill, we passed a family coming down WITH A STROLLER! This is not the kind of trail where a stroller is appropriate. Too steep, too many rocks and creek crossings. I'm guessing they didn't get very far to realize it was going to be a no-go.

This was an easy trail just a couple steep hills but well worth it. The weather was perfect for the hike today. Many stream crossings but not bad. Trail well maintained and pretty empty today.

Great trail! Hiked with my baby in a carrier. Wear comfortable shoes with grip and waterproof or water shoes as you have to cross creek by stepping on rocks. Will definitely return! Baby loved it. Lots of shade. Wear bug spray and sun screen!

A really good hike! With it being open again, it can be busy at the beginning of the trail. But after 2 miles it gets a lot better with no people. Lots of river crossing so I do recommend people to bring either water resistant shoes and or a pair of good sandals. Also, I know a lot of people hate seeing trash as much as I do, so please please please secure anything loose and that is trash in your pockets and or backpack.

Parking is only few spot maybe total 20 cars space , but if u go weekdays is not too bad, trail is started to go down , so prepare some energy once u get back Hike up , mostly rocky walk , so grip shoes is helpful. Few crossing creeks with some rocks , which you can manage to keep dry , or few wet won’t hurt. Nice few on the way , lots of shade to stop.

Good way to get into the woods scene for a little bit, walk along a creek for most of the hike with a lot of crossing the water on rocks.

An easy trail my kids love. One of their favorites

It’s a beautiful trail. Some Are currently closed off but we just went around. Lots of creeks to cross. Got our feet wet more then a few times!! Not so crowded, if we are trying to keep social distance.

Had a nice hike on this trail today. The creek was a little wide in some spots, but nothing that couldn't be crossed with a few well placed steps, on the river rocks sticking up out of the water. Do however stay on the trail, there is a lot of poison oak along the sides. Lots of shade!

A lot of tiny rivers that flow through the paths. So you have to balance on rocks to cross over. Cute little date walk.

This is a beautiful trail with lots of adventure! I loved crossing the stream multiple times and taking breaks on giant fallen tree stumps. Lots of shade and heavily trafficked - you’ll share it with other hikers, kids, dogs and horses. Watch out for the poison oak and bee nests. While most of the trail is “easy”, I would rate that steep half mile/mile long incline going back up to the parking spots as “moderate”, especially after hiking 5 miles already. Bring plenty of water - that stream makes you thirsty!
