A great trail up and down the mountain. Some challenging points at the beginning/end of deciding the best way around the boulders in the arroyo. It's great to be back in the pines and scrub oaks that cover the whole valley between the ridges.

Hadn't been on this trail for a while but enjoyed it yesterday. It's definitely on the difficult side especially for the first 1.5-2 hours but most of the minor obstacles thin out after a couple of hours. I remembered​ to wear some light weight gloves. They will save your hands after holding on to rocks at certain places. Take plenty of water, energy stuff and make sure to leave enough gas in the tank for the return trip.
