Did this trail on a Sunday morning. At 8:30, the parking lot was packed. I wouldn’t consider this lightly trafficked due to seeing at least 20 people while on the short trail. Several mountain bikers and trail runners out. A decent trail for doing some trail running, but let me tell you, the run on the way back is brutal since it’s going up the whole way. Decent trail, running creek with some foothill views. Not sure I’d do it again, but it was a good work out

This is an extremely easy trail. I'm not sure why its rated as moderate. Lots of burn area. kinda depressing. Although the cacti are beginning to bloom which was pretty.
