It was a great evening hike with my dog but I packed a good bit of water. It was still pretty warm even in the evening. Definitely would not attempt mid-day.

Do not attempt this hike on warm/hot days especially with a dog. No shade or breeze, the start of trailhead is mostly gravel and rocks which are awful for your furry friend's paws when it's hot out. Definitely try this hike on cooler days, probably better during October-March.

good hike, would not recommend bringing dogs here in the day time as it is too hot for them and there is no shade!

HikingGreat!

Great trail with lots of wild flowers and views. Perfect for the cloudy day. Part of it is still closed due to construction, so the total distance was ~4 mi

WalkingBugsNo shade

Very wide ,pretty smooth trail as far as terrain wise. Not many steep inclines unless you go off trail. Beautiful views of the canyon and the peace and quiet is enough to soothe your soul. Seen lots of adorable well behaved dogs on the trail and while the trail was mostly empty we did pass by a lot of other friendly hikers who kept their distance and wore masks for the most part. Some tips: -Bring water and wear sunscreen, there is no shade whatsoever -Be mindful of locals when parking. The lot is small and very close to their houses -Be aware of the mountain bikers and kindly move to the side as they come by -You will have little to no reception the further up the canyon you go so just be aware of that

Southern portion of the trail is closed so we did a modified version. We started at 7am and it was nice and quiet. By 9am the masses were pouring in and parking looked impossible. Nice views but no shade.

A good hike but the last portion of the trail was guarded by threatening “private property” signs so we didn’t go down it. Most of the hike seems more suitable for mountain biking but still a good workout!

Very closed due to COVID-19. Other exits are closed in the are too with warning signs. In general, great trail. Lots of ups then downs. Good for mountain biking and dogs. Absolutely no shade. Lots of little gnats.

There are no signs so it’s really easy to get off the trail here. There are a few different trails and it’s slightly Confusing with no signs. There are allllllot of dogs on this hike, most were not on leashes. Lots of dog poop and garbage around the hike :(
