Did a 13 mile loop around Morgan Hill and camped overnight. Alot of elevation gain and several descents. Several excellent views along the way!

very steep off the start but the view is worth it once you get to the top.

Its a great trail, I only give it a 4 star becuase I don't love trails that are so meticulously built. Follows some better visual routes than if you just bushwacked. Also nicely maintained in the watery areas. Not a hard trail, but best to take a half day and enjoy and
