Nice hike. pretty views. lots of shade. LOTS of OFF LEASH dogs despite signs saying you need to keep your dogs on leash :( Would not label this as moderate though. I would call this more easy with a slight bit of moderate. Great trail for families. Get there earlier if you want to get parking.

Lots of shade, boulders to climb, awesome creeks, nice views.

Beautiful May day, perfect temperature for a short hike. Lots of family and kids. Plenty of parking spot from this side was available at 9:15am to 10:30am.

Nice mellow hike with the snow. Mostly flat. Good to do when short on time or you want to pick and choose how far to go.
