Decent day hike. The trail does take you through some man made stuff (city buildings, telephone poles, a few houses) which is a negative for me. Pretty views, pretty easy hike.

I loved this hike! I took the counterclockwise way around the trail which was a good choice since the climb was very steady. There were plenty of offshoots from the trail in the first mile but after that, it's pretty easy to follow. My dog also loved it! Plenty of other friendly dogs to meet and several creek crossings where he could drink some water.

Awesome hike with beautiful wildflowers and amazing views! Only saw one other hiker the whole time but we went early on a Monday. The only reason I gave it four stars is some of the views get obstructed by telephone poles... it's too bad but still worth it and an awesome hike!!! Would definitely recommend.
