This is a great hike with lots of beautiful scenery! This trail is rated as 'hard'. It's hilly and rocky in parts but if you pace yourself, it'll be worth the effort.

Keep left at the fork to go up West Ridge to West Ravine, or stay on the SFT to hit the cabin and loop back around to West Ravine. Parking lot was busy but didn’t run into too much traffic on trail.

great trail with lots of scenery, a little busy on weekends for good reason. it's mostly old ranch roads with just a little single track
