Check the weather before going—the trail turns into a creek in the rain. Steep and fun with good views and a Petroglyph.

It was a nice little steep trail, gets you some cardio for the day. However, lots of loose rocks and pebbles, makes it more difficult for coming down, would not recommend trail running and the view is only okay. Don’t know if I would do it again but bring good shoes.

Great hike. Steep but worth the view. Parking lot is 3 bucks.

Great little hike. Tough climb up the mountain but really cool view at the top. The slide trail is an easier hike but I think has better views (I did both in the same day).
