This is a great semi-urban Trail! There are some lovely 360 degree and mountain views. We enjoyed stepping into the keyhole. The farther in you get the rockier the trail is. That last Loop (Laughing Horse Loop) was pretty uneven and challenging on the feet, and I was wishing a mountain biker would pass by so I could watch. I hear this trail is one to avoid in the summer due to heat and snakes, but in November it was absolutely wonderful!

Encountered a large rattlesnake last Sunday. The trail, in some places, is so narrow, that it's impossible to avoid rattlesnakes. I had a biker who helped me get out of that situation, & he probably saved my life. Please be careful of the rattlesnakes out there.
