A blast. Bumpy and rutted. Need full suspension bike next time.

This isn't "hard" if Sand Point via west ridge is moderate. I'd give this a moderate rating--It's the elevation gain on the way back that is a bit rough. We modified this route with a creek sojourn through cave gulch, and added some side cuts around Wild Boar trail on the way down. Lovely hike.

First to Review

Started at 8:30am, parking for free (only on weekends) in the lot right where the trail head begins. This was a great hike- pretty flat feeling overall and beautiful, varied views! About 3 minutes into the walk there is a tree that has fallen on the trail. You can either climb over it or go to the right on the trial around it. Tons of intersecting trails, so you’ll want to be careful that you stick to the right one although since there’s so many trails, you can easily detour and get back on track. We saw lots of mountain bikers and not too many hikers. In the morning it is beautiful and shaded, but be careful as the shade depends a lot on where the sun is, so the afternoon steals most of the shade away, making it a little more difficult on the way back! We completed this trail with breaks in 7hrs 10mins.
