Trail in good condition fairly easy to get up and down. Scenic and was able to walk my Bassett Hound on a leash would definitely do Trail again.

The western side of this loop was pretty somber; just a nice view of farmland. The eastern side was where the real beauty began. Lots of photo ops. Gorgeous.

$7 for a day pass but there are miles and miles of trails ! We did a 6.5 mile loop (many trails connect and loop to each other). Pretty creek in the canyon . Trails along the creek at the canyon bottom and rim trail along the edge of the canyon . Old dam you can hike to as well! Many nice lookouts . Enjoyable hike . Playground for kids near parking area. Some restroom. Dog friendly and rock climbing areas too.
