Beautiful trail. It wasn't crowded at all for a Saturday. There were four mountain bikes and three other hikers and all were friendly and polite. Interesting geology and numerous wildflowers in bloom. Amazing views! We will hike this trail again.

Very beautiful. We went very early in the morning and heard coyotes so if you bring your dog please keep a leash on him. The abandoned strip mine was not seen this time, maybe we didn't know where to look or maybe we were taken with the other scenery. I will say there are a few sketchy areas with very lose rocks.

Done this trail and various off shoots many times. Changing scenery is its prominent feature. It can get hot so hiking earlier in the day the better.

For a beginner that considers herself out of shape, I'd say this is more on the moderate side. A little rocky in the beginning and a lot of up and down hills. Some parts of the trail are a bit narrow. Not a lot of shade, but I was expecting that. Certain parts of the trail were closed too. Great views and a great workout though!

Trail was great and beautiful! Gets pretty rocky underfoot though, pretty sore by the end. The color changes and the views were 100% worth it!
