Gorgeous trail with just enough elevation climb to make me feel like I had a workout. Some rocky and loose rock areas on the trail, so hiking shoes best + bring water. September a great month for this trail- neither hot or cold. The views at the summit are gorgeous, even in the fire zone area (it's own special beauty). Weekend was traversed by others, but I was mostly hiking quietly alone- respectful groups.

The views were still hazy/smokey, but the trail wasn't. Drive slow heading up, lots of deep potholes.

Really fun Hike. Completed with my seven-year-old, 11-year-old, wife, and two dogs. Lots of fun. No water sources on trail. Gorgeous views. Lots of old fire damage. Great opportunity to discuss the importance of fire safety. We were slow and took our time. Very easy physically. I hope you choose to go!

It was beautiful up here. The flowers are in bloom, and the temperature drops and the views clear. The roads are well marked to get here, just be careful of the giant sink hole potholes. When I came up here there was NO indication there was anything wrong, but when we started on the trail there was just a piece of STOP DANGEROUS tape across the trail blocking it and several forestry trucks parked at the entrance. Would have been nice for a trail closed sign somewhere? I will come back up to do this hike again.
