One of my favorite walks-- I like to take my lapdogs; it's not too difficult for them. Interesting wildflowers at various seasons, nice views. I don't know why someone said this trail has a babbling brook; it definitely has nothing more brook-like than the drainage ditch by the parking lot.

Nice easy short hike. My 2.5year old did it with ease. There are some roots and rocks. Great view even with all the clouds!
