This trail is more challenging than it appears on the app. Vegetation over grown and parts of the trail were washed out by winter rains making it more hazardous to navigate.

This trail is no joke. Some of the trail, due to the rains is washed away. Lots of loose dirt in the narrow parts. Other than that the views are great. I slipped on my butt a few times when it got dark, and lost my gopro. :(

The trail is so overgrown on the east side due to the heavy rains earlier in the year. Nice views over Kanan Rd and a reservoir.

This is a great hike but it is harder then moderate. VERY steep at times, slippery, tiny trail...we loved it just wished I had brought my hiking stick. Beautiful views and very green right now
