If you go clockwise, the first half of the trail is through shade, then you climb up to Eagle rock and hike back up down. If you take the fire road to complete the loop, the morning sun will most likely be on your back so it will be less demanding on the downhill hike.

Went here for my first backpacking experience. Loved it. Paid $10 for parking and $7 for the overnight stay at the parking lot machine, then hiked the mile up to the trail camp. There are about 8 spots, as well as 2 sinks and toilets which are clean as well. Half of the camping spots are a bit shaded, while the others are in sunlight most of the day. I went on a Tuesday night and there were many spots available. The hiking here is also amazing, especially the hike from Trippet Ranch to the trail camp, and then onward to Eagle Rock, where the views up top are amazing. The west side of the trail loop is rather ‘primitive’, which I love. On the other side of the loop is a fire road, with more foot traffic, and its more maintained. Many friendly hikers on the trails all around. I will definitely be back…
