Beautiful views. Lightly traveled trail by hikers and runners. We rode horseback the Miwok Trail first, then the Hardy Canyon. Would suggest the reverse, Hardy first to Miwok. Do the canyon early when the sun is low and then Miwok should be in the shade on the way down. On horseback the Hardy has many sandstone outcrops, they aren't slippery, but very challenging if you are going down them, up would be better. This is not a beginner trail for horses.
