If you’re hiking along the gravel wash, you are not on the actual trail (I realized that about 1 mile in.) Once you get to the north side of the mountain, I recommend veering right to go up and over. It adds some nice elevation and leg burn. Be prepared to scramble back down on the east side.

Really rockey and trash everywhere. there are a lot of off shoot paths so it's a bit confusing choosing the main path sometimes

Main walking paths are DEEP GRAVELLY and rocky. Not easy to walk. Worth to check it out on a clear cool day

this trail has some nice parts, but a lot of it is running through a deep gravel pit.

Great trail around the mountain. One short inclining hill, but after that is smooth sailing.

Great trail. Great wild flowers. Great cardio. Beware of snakes. Ran into a rattlesnake on the last mile. It didn't harm us but he was about 4 feet away

Interesting, moderate hike. Not too steep anywhere but it keeps going!
