Very short and easy. Nice that it is so close to town. Trail partly is in trees and shady but nearer trailhead is exposed and was hot today. I look forward to doing this in winter with cleats. No one else there while we hiked.

Great trail for kids! We took our crew (aged: 8, 7, 6, and 5 - plus infant in a carrier) and did the trail in about 80 minutes (that includes a 15 min huckleberry picking stop). We even saw a bald eagle!

Lovely trail. I took my 4 year old with me and we had no issues. Also a great spot to look for bald eagles at the right time of year!

I love doing this hike after work in the evening. It's a quick, beautiful hike that has a bit of a climb near the end. Super fun!
