Really fun trail! Great for dogs! Gorgeous views everywhere you look. Get there early, when we were leaving around 10:30a there was already a ranger at the gate and the lot was all parked up.

Easy to moderate. Most of the uphill is in the beginning, always a plus. Not much shade and can be windy. Interpretive signs along the way.

This trail was a little bit pitted and had some tire tracks from people ridding in mud. Very rocky. Need to remember to do the north rim of trail and work counter clock wise

I’m starting to get into hiking because I have nothing better to do during this Coronavirus stuff. At first the parking lot seemed to be packed and we thought the trail was busy. Nope. Beautiful trail. Love it and would recommend it to anyone.

Trailhead was packed today (3/15) at noon, but the trail itself wasn't too crazy. Few muddy spots on the trail were avoidable. No shade = no ice in March! Pretty views and an easy, chill hike :)

Visited the trail 03/04/2020 at 11:30 AM and there were a handful of cars in the parking lot. By the time I finished there were only a few empty spots left. Most of the snow has melted, and about half of the walk was muddy but manageable. Would definitely rate this as more of an easy hike. My toddler was able to walk most of it.

Great trail, I’d say it’s moderately wooded. I arrived at 3:30 for a sunset hike and was no disappointed. Trail is extremely muddy in spots, though, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. My pup and I had a great time, and the view for sunset is pretty phenomenal. I’d definitely say this is an easy hike and accessible but rocky.

01/10/20 friday arrived at 915 am. parking lot around half full. please note there are no poop bags available on this trail so if you have a dog please plan on bringing your own! way too much dog poop just along the side of the trail. please remember to be good dog owners and clean up after your pet. the only trash can is at the trailhead. trail is dry. there is not a lot of shade along the trail. so be aware depending on the weather or season you are hiking in.
