This was a nice hike with good upwards rock scrambles. The parking lot it takes you to from the app is not directly where the start/stop is. So the beginning of the trail was a bit off course but easily found. The trail was moderately crowded but everyone maintained social distancing guidelines. Had some nice views. Would definitely do this hike again or recommend to a friend.

This was a nice moderate hiking trail. Definitely be ready for some scrambles throughout but nothing unmanageable. The trail was crowed at times but everyone respected social distancing. Some nice open views throughout. Would definitely come back or recommend to a friend.

Definitely one of my new favorites. The first couple miles are good to get your heart beating fast, lots of ups and downs. After that, the last three or so miles are on a wide trail with much more gradual in/declines. Definitely wear some grippy hiking boots for this one, some areas are a bit steep and require careful footing. Can be a tad muddy at certain bits, but it also rained recently, so not surprising.

This was an awesome trail. Just my pace - some steep climbs but many level trails too. Nice views. Very well marked. I mapped it and it was 4.8 miles.

Fun trail with lots of great views. There’s a lot of up and down with when you get to the hilly parts. There’s plenty of shade. It’s a good hike!
