Fun little trail. Easy to miss a few of the proper twists and turns while ascending. Not a lot of cover from the sun, but that’s to be expected on a bluff in the foothills. Decent views at the top.

I like this trail. The first half is kinda boring and flat. The second half you need to climb up a pretty steep trail up to the flat top. The scenic view there is worth it. Would be perfect to be there around sunset.

This is a harder moderate hike, all of the incline gain is right at the end of the trail to get to the top of the mountain but it is well worth the effort. Beautiful view and a great place to sit and eat a bite before heading back down. On our way back we ran into some noisy dirt bikers but besides that it was great. Very hot and not much shade but that just added to the challenge, which we liked.

Great quick hike.. You can park at the first gate for a longer hike or go in towards the second gate for a shorter hike. Some shade during the hike more towards the climb up.

great combo of a clay trail turning into a short climb to the top of a rocky mountain with stunning views.

Trail Ys off at a few points and it was very helpful to have the AllTrails map to follow. Nice cardio hiking to the top towards the end!

Yes there are signs that say closed, however they look like someone printed them at home. I’d recommend bug spray. It was a fun and beautiful hike. Took my two 17 year old daughters out and they enjoyed themselves! The view is amazing!

Due to the virus, this area is close. The homeowner on right side, (before the trail begins), I noticed when arriving he was cleaning his yard. When I parked he got on the phone. (might thoughts was calling authorities) when walking by his house, he did warn us it was close and the police can come any time. We ignored him, but my wife wanted to go back. After 15 mins of debating whether we should still continue to go we decided to go back to our car. Sure enough the sheriff pulled up, he was nice guy and told us we have to stay home. He did warn us that we can't be around this area, also explain about the residents around their. So we didn't get to go to our hike this time. So if your planning to go, best don't. The parking area is close but their is a few parking areas down the street but the neighborhood could get mad. It is a narrow road and their is a few house that say private property, meaning don't park in front of their house. their is a lot of paper signs made by the residents.

This was a paper saying due to covid19 that the trail was closed but I think a local is just trying to keep people away...it didn’t work because the trail was full of happy healthy people trying to get a good hike in . Kid friendly. Great views.

We parked out by the gate and walked the track to the actual trail. This made it much more challenging for us and our 3 kids. my at the time 4 year old needed to be carried, then the last bit her and I sat out because the incline and steep stretch to the top. My husband and 2 older kids (13 & 16) were able to go to the very top where they said it was beautiful.

03/21/2020 - Great hike with an awesome view at the top. The trail is mostly easy but the last 50 yards gets steep and rocky. The trail is heavily trafficked with limited parking at the main entrance. More parking is available past the first gate but you might need 4x4 if it is wet/muddy. Everyone had fun, especially the dog.

If you read my review dated November 2018 you will see that I told about a way to make this a loop trail rather than just an out and back. Recently I took a group of experienced hikers on this new section and although they had no problem, they thought it would be a bit sketchy for the average hiker. It would be a great addition if somehow it saw more work. Currently it has quite a bit of poison oak also. If people herein indicated they did or wanted to do it, I would spray the poison oak. If you do this trail it would be less sketchy if you went counterclockwise. (go up the new section rather than down)

Parking is tricky, if it is busy you have to park far away along a narrow residential road. Otherwise, mostly no shade until you are climbing up and a bathroom is available at the base of the hike. Awesome hike, well marked trails, would recommend.
