Everything’s been pretty dead this year since there hasn’t been much rain. It’s a nice easy walk but not much scenery

Fun but I would do for a while. The brush was over 6 feet tall and had to mash through cause was already committed and a lot of bees. Beautiful scenery though.

This trail is beautiful to hike during the wildflower season. Since we haven't had a lot of rains, the trail itself is dry, without much color. It's a decent hike and there are nice vistas at some of the high points. No shade at all, so go early or on days that won't get as hot.

Overall it was a nice place to walk in nature with my dog. I was a bit sad to not have seen more colors in the plants ( it was mostly dead), but it was still pretty. It's unfortunate that you have to pay for parking ($5) but the price is not bad.

Gorgeous hike despite the overgrown dried shrubs that blocked us from making the loop to Sidewinder Trail.

Many trails are overgrown due to lack of maintenance, short staffed. Bring lots of water and snacks and don't panic when you reach a dead end due to overgrown trails you can't get through. Grab a map too so you can call the ranger if you get in trouble.
