Great trail, can be very rocky at times, so watch your step, but the views into the foothills and over the city are worth it. It is also a very busy trail, went on a Sunday and there were few moments I couldn't see anyone else on the trail, lots of dogs and lots of families.

Great quick and beautiful hike for a Sunday. Varied viewpoints. A number of people had their dogs with them as well and they seemed to enjoy it. Definitely be cautious in the summer months as it is quite a sunny route - but great for cooler months! I would definitely do this one again.

For a local hike, this was fun and challenging with excellent views. And a very good workout!

Nice views, but very exposed. I wouldn't go again if it were hot out. Also do watch for rattlesnakes
