Wonderful trail, beautiful views. Warning for fall/winter hikers: this will be primarily shaded after about 2pm so bring something warm. Half of the trip is uphill, half back downhill. Makes for a great loop.

Excellent trail. Not too strenuous for novice hikers. Brought my girlfriend to ease her into hiking/camping with this day hike. The views are amazing, and there are plenty of campsites to choose from here at the campground. There are also a handful of spots to camp along the trail. This was well worth the trip.

Solid hike, relatively easy climb to with good views along the way. Not the most epic peak view but still worth it. We finished in about and hour and forty minutes. Enjoy!

We are novice hikers in our late 50’s, the hike was challenging, beautiful and exhilarating. Took us 4 hours but the younger folks in the trail were at least twice as fast. We definitely recommend this trail. Take water, trail shoes, we used walking sticks which were helpful.

It’s a great trail very challenging. The elevation gain is about 1600 feet. And it’s 4 1/2 miles. Took us almost 5 hours

One of my favorite trails - it was overcast today and a nice change. Saw a couple of deer.

As a relatively new hiking addict, this was definitely my most challenging hike yet but also the most rewarding. The views are absolutely breathtaking. The weather was cool and somewhat humid from earlier rains but I think that actually added to the experience. I would definitely recommend it!

Pretty well maintained and not too difficult. No real grandiose view at the midway point, but good views along the way.

HikingGreat!

Overall great trail. There are quiet a few places I couldn’t tell where the trail went. People had made other paths, about 4-5 times I had to backtrack. 60% of the trail is uphill and fairly steep.

Great trail! We did it with an 18-lb baby in a front carrier and a 13-year old dog. We took a lot of breaks to drink water, but had a blast!

Fantastic hike. Not too hard, rightly rated as moderate. The fall colors are beginning to come in and it was really great to see the pines proliferate so close to the desert. Fantastic sights. Camping is also available on site.

Beautiful, a good diversity of plant life, birdwatching, sunsets... A healthy hike! Definitely come prepared (sun protection, water, snacks...) if you want to do the whole loop.

Great trail. From the sign at the bottom by the parking area it is about 4.7 miles total loop. Bring lots of water. We had a 7 year old and a toddler in a hiking backpack. Only a little complaining.
