The trail runs behind many homes and properties, there was no access to water when I went (early fall) so you have to make sure you bring plenty. it was not scenic and pretty, difficult to find the start of the trail also. The moderate rating seems completely off. The switchbacks were intense. Great workout but I won't be doing this trail again.

As someone who is just starting to venture out & hike, this was a good choice for me. There was a lot to see (the manzanita & moss were stunning), & the trail offered me the right amount of variation... a little bit of everything! Plenty of stretches to try out some trail running & plenty of steeper grade for me to start to build stamina & strength.

Because I had read several reviews from hikers who were disappointed by the roads, homes, etc., I knew to expect them. For significant stretches I felt isolated & could really appreciate solitude & surroundings.

A nice little hike in town, it's short and easy. Dog friendly. Opens up to a nice top of a hill, great for a picnic or relaxing. I go up here several times a month.

Beautiful area but the path parallels roads, streets and homes most of the way. Definitely not a get away from civilization. The elevation gain appears to exceed the hundred feet as indicated in the description.
