Lovely hike, steadily uphill (but not sharply so) with some nice scenery. First 3 miles are mostly shaded. I only went 4 miles due to time constraints. Trail is rocky—glad I had hiking boots so I wouldn't turn an ankle.

Steep uphill at the start moderates about the 1 mile mark.

Awesome hike first part is somewhat hot but you get random bits of shade throughout. Best view is a little after the fourth mile! Breathtaking views there. But from mile 4.5-6.2 not much going on honestly if you're not up for the whole thing hike to mile 4.5, soak it all in.. Then go back. Also good hike for dogs but right after mile 4 it gets rocky for a bit.. But me and my pooch made it! Fantastic hike!

One of my favorites. Great hike/trail run. Low traffics after mile three and great views.
