I am not sure why I chose this trail on the VERY windy day, Although this is shorter than the other trail, the footing is much harder with many many many rocks. Did not have much view as the clouds rolled in.

Not as easy as you'd think from easy rating, but definitely worth the effort

Decent, easy hike. Not a lot shade, but a few benches to rest along the trail.

Pretty and easy trail. No water or much shade though so pack extra if you bring the dogs!

Beautiful trail. Saw a bear at the overlook, tons of deer, and a rattlesnake. Incredible sunset! A very special place!

Took my two kids (4&8) it was a good beginning how to see how they would do on longer more challenging hikes later. Gradual rise and fall in elevation, nothing extreme. Lots rock in about half the path. Definitely worth it to go past the trail end and see the overlook.
No cover entire trail.
