Good for an easy quick trip from the valley.

Not really marked, but it’s really a dirt access road all the way to the top. A bit muddy in spots and about 3” of snow on top. Great views, great workout. This would be a really good run for someone working up to marathon length. Very quiet- only other people I saw were in vehicles.

Beautiful early spring on my dual sport motorcycle. The snow was tricky but the view were great.

This is a good winter/spring hiking area, both on and off the road. But, I am not sure why dogs are required to be on a leash. In fact, I believe this is a very good place to take your dogs and allow them to run a bit and get exercise, as there are very few people hiking in this area. Wally

Partially on state and private land, should be careful of the shingle rock and snakes. Great hike though.
