Very Clearly marked and very doable trek! Took us about 2/12 hours to complete. loose rock but overall a chill hike. Went in Mid-June it was 85° and 76° when we finished.
Our dogs loved it. The Cows had us blocked in a spot for a min.
wore shorts and tank. take sunscreen and water, maybe some jerky for a snack.

Really nice hike, especially past the .5 mile mark. The beginning of the trail has a lot of thistle so definitely wear pants, and the trail is a steady climb for 1.4 miles. Might be tough for real young kids. My 4 year old got tired after .5 and went back with my wife. But if you keep going, the last .5 of the trail has spectacular views of Nogal peak, and the end of the trail is atop a crest with incredible 360 views. I would rate this as moderate though due to the incline, loose rocks, and dense underbrush at the start of the trail. Overall, a really nice, relatively short hike with great views at the end. Didn't see anyone else on the trail!

Great trek!! Great 6 mile loop! No.25 trail gets thin but all in all able to determine the correct route. Constant views! Hope this little guide I did will help you do it too! Would recommend at least 2 liters of water and maybe a snack also wear pants cause the trail is filled with prickly plants. 10/10 for us! Cheers - justin , chandler, and trekker the Aussie dog !
