Great trail! Too bad we had to walk almost a mile up on beverly from greenleaf. The main entrance was closed :( We hiked the sumac trail to the water tank and back down. A great workout!!! Nice incline to begin and some hills that will take it to the next level. Will definitely be coming back!

A challenging trail with inclines up the ying yang. This trail will work your legs, glutes and abs. Some parts of the trail is bumpy due to rocks. I saw people of all ages hiking along with various types of dogs. I just wished people would pick up after their dogs. There were a lot of dog sh*t along the trail, like land mines. Parking lot is super small so you have to either get there super early or park a few blocks away. The nearby residential streets require permits to park.

The first mile on Peppergrass trail is a steep uphill. When you get to the top it’s a beautiful view of the City. If it’s too much for you you can take Mariposa trail that is on your right less than half up Peppergrass Trail. It will eventually reconnect. But be warned that the path is narrow and looks like a drop cliff on the other side. Both trails connect onto Rattlesnake Ridge. We took Mariposa on the way back. Make sure you take plenty of water and bug spray. There are only like 2 dozens parking spaces and they were full. It’s all permit only parking on the street right outside so you will have to park off Beverly and walk to the trail. There were a lot of people when we went around 9am. I don’t know why this is rated Moderate I would say it was difficult with all the steep uphills.
