Nice hike, not long, but not as easy as easy trials. Narrow walking area. Tons of lizards. I liked it though, an was a pretty view.

Awesome quick little trail. Myself, my wife, 2 year old and an 90lb husky/shepherd. Trail was overgrown but I’m sure due to no one being able to work during the pandemic but still not bad to get through. Only con really was the ton of poop on the actual trail which is narrow in some portions.

Signs a little white-washed out. I wanted to read about the history of the area. The trail didn’t have signs where to walk. I had an app that we used. The app said the trail was heavily used but was very overgrown due to the rains. Narrow trail. Beautiful views. Came across a 3-4 ft snake crossing the narrow trail. I decided to not finish the trail in the event more snakes were hiding in the overgrown brush. Would not take pets here. 3pm in afternoon.

Overgrown I felt bad for my dog that kept getting hit in the face by all the spiky weeds. It’s short, but a beautiful scenic hike though!

Enjoyable trail. Nice views. Somewhat steep uphill for the first mile and then it flattens out and is downhill. The downhill is also somewhat steep. Overall I had a nice time however it seems this trail is more moderate than easy.

Pretty nice short hike. First half has a gradual incline while the second half starts leveling out and it’s downhill from there. You end up back onto the sidewalks when you’ve reach near the end and it’s a uphill walk back to the parking lot. Lots of poop on the trail btw. I even almost stepped on one coming out of my car when I first got here.

Nice walk for a sunrise or sunset. Wildflowers starting to bloom. Saw a family of coyotes on the trail. Dog friendly, but advise to keep on leash. Easy to follow, several trail markers.
