Starts out nice and easy, then gets a little more technical with some loose rocks, the some steep large rocks. Better if your horse is in shape and has shoes. Felt like i needed a mountain goat at some points. Trails are marked and in places where it might be iffy they have dead joshua trees blocking the wrong way.

We would not call this hard, moderate. Although is says best from March to Oct we went Jan 1 and it was great. It would be awesome during wild flower blooming time.

This is a great trail for running! Aim for fall or spring to really enjoy it without the heat. Start at the trailhead by the campgrounds for a full 5 mi!

This trail was a bit challenging for somebody who hasn't hiked in years, but very doable. The views we breathtaking. I loved standing high on the hills looking around at the mountains surrounding me near and far.

It was windy and cold, we could only saunter as far as we could, which was about a mile overall. I'd taken some friends on this little hike, they'd just flown in the night before from Florida. An amazing trail I'm going to return to.
