HikingGreat!

If you want to see many types of animals. This is the spot! I’ve seen wild birds, a red hail hawk, lizards, gophers, and from a distance it was either a coyote or a fox!? Going back felt like a trail hidden maze.

HikingGreat!

Great hike with excellent views. Thanks for the warning about ticks. We kept our dog on leash and walked the middle of the trail and only had one tick. We really liked the many options and number of trails.

A lovely short loop hike with nice views and informative signs. There are benches where the view is the best. Tried to follow the path to the Muir house and section, but you can only enter through the side on Alhambra.

DOG OWNERS: Great hike but found 15-20 ticks on my dog, my friend who went 2 weeks ago who I talked to after had the same experience. Just be cautious of them on this trail

I can see it getting muddy in the winter but it has been dry for a while so it was great. Semi steep start but once you're up it's beautiful and only a little bit of up and down.
