Hiked this trail in the Spring. The previous Winter had been quite rainy, leaving the understory lush and green. One could hear the roar of Cache Creek in flood from the abundant rains about a mile in from the trail head. Exhilarating views. Will return.

Decent area. Most of the wilderness is dead cause of the fire a few years ago so there isn't a lot of wild life. The incline when you reach the mountain is pretty tough. Steep incline. The water level is high in cache creek during winter. I went during January. There is nowhere to cross the cache creek on the winter when you reach the baton flat. I was told by the locals that the creek can be crossed during the summer. It is about 2.5 miles from the parking area to the baton flat. Great views when you get to the top of the mountain.

Well maintained trail with beautiful views. Hike up for mountain and valley vistas or hike down to Cache Creek.
This mountain was burned in the Lake County fire last summer, and it's interesting to watch it come back.

Beautiful in the fall, wonderful trail, and dipping into Cashe Creek is the bonus

Pretty easy in the beginning. Pretty flat and then moves into pretty steep terrain. I think it needs more Switchbacks but it probably is not intended for a mountain bike. I am intermediate rider on an entry-level GT Palomar. Going down was pretty tho. Overall I would say difficulty is moderate for biking, downhill moderate. Just be prepared to work to get to the top.
