Beautiful. It was overcast today, maybe at around 500’. Nice and cool. Only a slight breeze. I met only one other person on the trail. The freeway did seem a little louder today, maybe because of the low overcast, but it was not excessively loud.

Beautiful day out there today. Lots of people near the rocks by the parking lot which is typical of a nice Saturday, but further back it was nice and less crowded. Did see one small snake, but no issues.

The trail started off very crowded with people on a Saturday, with many families with small children. As we continued on the trail it became much more isolated, with some good views of the vasquez rocks. The highway is almost always in view, which kind of spoils the serenity of the area. But on the return trip back, you walk along the top of the ridge and get some good views.

this trail map begins at the entrance gate, so if you park anywhere within the ranch you're already starting partway along the trail. this made following the beginning of the trail fairly difficult; but once you get past the picnic table area it's clearer where to go. please stay on the trail; so many damaged plants and rock formations from people trampling down their own trails is really disappointing. I took someone else's advice and went clockwise, which was very good advice for avoiding other people on the trail. but I do feel like you miss some of the views if you go clockwise so maybe next time I'll reverse it. trail is very narrow and difficult to follow at times (mostly because it branches off randomly due to people hiking off-trail) but the AllTrails map does a good job of keeping you on the main trail. beautiful views and lots of flowers in spring, absolutely no shade whatsoever though (unless you're shorter than a juniper bush!)

Trails in excellent condition with plenty of options to extend the loop with minimal people. However, freeway on back side with lots of noise which is only downside.

Outstanding. Seemed extremely crowded but once you get past the main rock formation it becomes wonderfully serene. Way more fun to avoid the first part of the ridge (going clockwise) and explore all the rocks and canyons. We also snuck off the top ridge into an intermediate section where we explored some gorgeous formations and shortened the loop further. There is so much more here than we knew and the back end of the loop has insane views and is very peaceful
