I am new to hiking and out of shape. this trail is an awesome workout for those like myself. I had to rest a minute 2 times, but I did do the whole thing. I am someone who pushes through so I wanted to complete it, but I wouldn't recommend this to all 46 year old, out of shapers :) We will be back though, we loved it!

Lots of people and dogs on a Saturday but overall a good workout.

Good length of a hike and some challenge (for me at least) with the incline and coming back up. It was busy, particularly on a beautiful February day.

Nice trail but fairly busy for people who prefer a little more solitude.

I always have a fun time walking this trail. It is a relaxing trail but also gets in a nice walk.
