By far the best trail I've been on for hiking. Great obstacles to work around and wonderful views. Very little shade which is great if you're working on a tan. Make sure to take the right connecting trail for the loop otherwise you'll add more miles unexpectedly.

This trail is fun because it has a variety of terrain, the path is narrow and rocky (fun to climb around), and it's good exercise without being overly difficult. The hills, wildflowers, and views are beautiful. Being so close to the city, you can still see roads and hear some city sounds. That's the only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. Otherwise, love this trail. It's probably not going to fill your craving for a real retreat from urban life, but it's a fun, pretty, close-by trail that you'll most likely enjoy anyway.

We went on a Thursday afternoon and didn't run into a single hiker until our way down.

The views were incredible, but the trail was rockier and narrower than I had expected.
