Nice short hike, yes, steep like they all say. Hiked on a cloudy day after all the rains and with the fallen leaves it was interesting at times due to the incline. Instead of coming back down it, I went on over to Livermore and took the Prescott trail down to the old road. Nice way to make this into a loop hike.

This was an ok hike. It seemed more moderate than easy... yes its kind of a short trail but the majority of the trail is steep! Still doable with a baby on your back but slow and steady for sure. View was nice at top but only a small clearing to see it.
