One of my favorite local hikes. Beautiful scenery and more views than a Drake album. Took this all the way to Sheep Camp campground and boy was it a treat. Definitely recommend.

We're not experienced hikers at all and this trail was a breeze! My 4 year old and 10 year old kids loved it. Lots to see and plenty of shade.

Easy hike. Good for kids or dogs with a large path, plenty of shade and not too steep.
