Super fun hike! The trail was hard to find a few times, but we always did in the end!

Very busy as it was a really warm February day before a storm. Still a great hike in Town.

First 1/3 is the off leash dog trails, which was fine for my dog and me but something to be aware of. The Templeton section was a far more interesting hike and very enjoyable, but definitely moderate, not an easy hike. Actual mileage almost 4 miles, not sure why All Trails always underestimates it. A few icy and muddy patches in the shade on Templeton but not too bad. Traction would have been helpful but definitely not necessary. Overall a very nice quiet hike!

Nice trail however we started too late and it got dark and worrisome. Would definitely do again earlier in day.

Sunny!

We ended up doing a different part of the trail. The map option narrows considerably so we branched off. The section we did was well maintained and wide enough for a vehicle. We saw plenty of people, dogs, and mountain bikes. We did see a coyote though.
