The trail is great for trail running and normally takes 1-3 hours. This route goes out to the picnic table / camping site, and the trail is in great shape.

Awesome views. Take plenty of water & snacks, trail is long. Be sure to follow the paths & smile for the random game cameras located along the trail.

If you like it long and hard, this is the one for you. Bring more water than you think you'll need, and wear/bring pants if you plan to summit. Should also start early. The ripe guava in August were very nice.

Easy early on with steady elevation gain. About 4 miles into it the trail gets more difficult with lots of ups and downs and several sections with ropes for climbing. Beautiful views. Only encountered one other individual on the trail all day.

Long trail, not too hard at all. Go passed the old sign that says it's closed due to landslide. The trail was fine. Wear a hat and sunscreen on a sunny day. Spikes are useful for the rope sections.
