We had this trail completely to ourselves (except for the grasshopper/crickets). It was all up on the way out with some significant grade incline. We had our dogs and they enjoyed the few creek crossings to get a drink and cool their feet. Trail was well-marked. We gave this 4 stars because it was difficult walking on the loose gravel at the significant grade. Did see one snake on the path near the top.
