Lots of good qualities about this trail. Lots of peace and quiet. Wide path which would be good for groups with 5 or more. Great vista points. Path is very scenic. Moderate/Strenuous inclines most of the way. Few FYI's...Wear good hiking shoes because there are lots of rocks embedded in the trail as well as portions of the trail being sandy. Bring plenty of water with... you will be climbing. Bug spray recommended.Why? There are mosquitos along the trail. They did not bother me but they harassed my wife until we got to the higher elevation. So if you are partial to them coming after you then spray yourself before you head up. Also I would not recommend this trail for kids under 12 due to the constant incline.

If you are currently training your dog to walk on a leash, I highly suggest this trail due the light traffic and wide roads. However, expect a large amount of traffic in the parking lot. The other trails in this canyon are increasingly popular. Beautiful view at the top when it's clear.
