Great views if it's clear. For half of the trail there will be no shade if sunny and there is a steady incline the whole way. I went when it was overcast and hiked through the clouds and ended up with a view of blue skies above and clouds below. Plan to go again on a clear day or night. Trail is in great shape.

This was my first venture on this trail. I was looking for a good trail run to do some hill sprints... this was perfect! Inclines the whole way up, breathtaking beauty all around, and the view about 2.5 miles up was amazing! Looking forward to doing this one again and seeing a lot more of the trail.

Turned this into an almost 20 mile marathon. Got to the top gate and took a left on Sisar instead of the trail up figuring I'd make it a loop. Didn't realize how far around that took to get up to where it meets Nordhoff Ridge Road - then a good distance more to get to the top of the trail just under Topa Topa. Was initially going to summit the bluffs but had burned through most of my water. Headed back down the trail (top part great for trail running). Did tear up a heel though which kept me home the next couple of weekends.

It was a nice beautiful day. Not too hot and a nice cool breeze.
