All up hill made it a challenge. View from the top wad nice but trees blocked your view most of the way up.
Fall leaves changing was timed perfectly.

Beautiful scenery. Our GPS said it was 8.5 miles round trip, and it really seemed like that. The views were wonderful along the way, too, so if you want to go 1/2 or 3/4 of the way, you'd be rewarded. The trailhead is well marked & there's good parking there.

It's a great hike with a wonderful view at the top. A lot of loose rock makes it a little more difficult for dogs

The trail still has a little fire damage but it is a great hike filled with beautiful flowers everywhere. We had 70's and a light breeze so it is hard not to have a great day and hike with that. There is a good variety of different areas along the way. I would do this again.

Great Trail!! Only concern was on the way down I came across a small herd of cows blocking the trail.

Great hike. Light traffic. 6.7 miles on garmin forerunner watch, 6.5 on another garmin, 6.3 on alltrails app. 3-3.5 hrs taking your time and having lunch, 2-2.5 hrs if you just hike solid and steady whole way.

This trail starts off fairly breezy, just walking through some wild flowers, and then becomes harder as you ascend.
I loved this trail. Not only did it offer beautiful views on the way to the summit, but once to reach the top, all your hard work was worth it.
I will definitely hike this trail again.
