The trail was okay, more rocky than expected. Only saw a couple people d mountain bikers and had the trail to ourselves almost the whole time.

I had low expectations with this trail, but I actually really enjoyed it! Dogs and I hiked up on a Sunday morning and there were 2-3 other cars parked on the street with us (no lot) and we saw 2-3 other people walking and a few mountain bikers. You can take your car off road and drive up some of the trail and park, but it's pretty rocky and steep so I would just hike it. Some wildflowers and a creek, and a few views here and there. Half of the trail is uphill getting there, but once you reach the second bridge it flattens out. A little steep going downhill back to the car, but had no problems in my Converse.

First to Review

Still quite a bit of water in the seasonal creeks draining Lakeview Canyon. Therefore wildflowers still good and LOTS of various butterflies. Nice hike.
