It’s a good trail to hike if you want a good workout and a little distance. No shade, dusty but great 360 views from the saddle and ridges. Hats, sunscreen, and plenty of water

Awesome. Had a second wind so veered off to do north fortuna after starting this. Part of it was closed during the week for construction but it wasn’t a huge detour. Mostly wide and very few people on Thanksgiving! Was very lovely.

Busy this morning with running groups, but overall a good workout given the distance.

Any variation of Mission Trails is always a good time! There are some steep uphill and downhill parts but they’re not super long. Always recommend hiking boots and plenty of water!

It was good. There are a bunch of trails that connect- so we just hiked around. Get there early, or a ton of people show up by 9-10

Beautiful views...enjoyed the stream too. The going downhill was tough though for so long. Hate that some trails are cut off during the weekday too.

Este camino que camine hoy fue mucha subida , perfecto para los que andan en bicicleta igual también ayuda mucho a los que caminamos muy bien cardio Sigo admirada por tantos caminos que hay para recorrer y cómo se conectan .. Solo que aquí ojo El Estacionamiento lo cierran a las 7:00pm Por eso debemos estar al pendiente con la hora .. Incluso esta aplicación ayuda mucho para no perderte y regresar a tiempo .. la Recomiendo muchísimo sobre todo si pagan al año para poder tener más acceso al Los mapas .. disfruto tanto venir aquí

this was my first mountain hike in about 5 years and probably wasn't the best pick. still good scenery, quiet trails with the exception of the occasional mountain bike. go early to beat the heat.

Went from 9-1:30 and it was so hot and I ran out of water. Bring at least 2 liters of water per person. Did both south and north peak and it was definitely a workout at nearly 9 miles and 2k elevation

Decent hike, go early in the morning because the heat can be very intense. I went through about 4 liters of water in the time it took to do this loop. also wear some decent shoes, i took the service road back and there's practically no grip on them.
