This was a great hike, and the weather was perfect for it. We went on a Mon, which was also President day..see a few other people on the trail but for the most part had the area to ourself. Although this trail is not stroller friendly it is kid friendly and I can see a child 8+ enjoying this area as well as dogs on leashes. There has been some trail damage due to the recent rains.

Pretty short trail but it was tougher than I expected. Not difficult for adults but there were some steep parts that made it challenging for my toddlers. My 4 Yr old was able to manage but we had to carry the 2 Yr old. Overall we enjoyed this trail and the kids got a big kick out of seeing this giant rock painted like a pumpkin.

Great climb up. A little slippery on the way down. Great view from up there.

I've written a review before on this location but since we can't edit them, decided to add some add'l information.

Yes the joy of this Hike is getting to the Top and taking pics with the Big Pumpkin. But either before you leave or before you get started go take some pics of the horses. I missed this the first time out and didn't see it in any reviews.

When you get to the Trail head walk the trail that's to the left along the Fence. That is a quick quarter of a mile or so to get to the horses..... then so visit the Pumpkin.

Enjoy.

And although people say this is an easy Trail. It's not. The incline can get brutal. So take your time. And definitely wear shoes with traction.
