It is difficult to identify which trail is which from the parking lot/trail(s) head. I’m not sure which we hiked on today...that being said, the views from this location are lovely. I hiked this with a 3.5 year old and he did excellent.

Walked that trail today. not too difficult. Actually I hiked around the whole base of the mountain, took me 2 hours. The trail is fairly level and easy to navigate. Would be nice to do it again the spring when the plants are in bloom.
