It was a nice hike with great views of the area. We went from 8-10 in the morning and the weather was cloudy and cool. I enjoyed the sound of the creek because it had recently rained. We went clockwise which meant the creek was first and saved the peak for the end. I would do it again.

Nice trail with some great views and extra loops if you want to extend it.

A portion of this loop is NOT DOG FRIENDLY, just a heads up for dog owners out there :) you can take the horned lizard trail but it adds a significant amount of elevation gain, and also an extra half a mile in distance
