HikingGreat!

Very beautiful trail!!! Even in winter time, in spring it has to be amazing. The only objection is that it is very crowded, and in some part of the trail you can hear the traffic from nearby road. However, the trail is so nice that you can bear that.

Good trail with moderate elevation gain. Lots of up and down with log stairs.

Fun trail area. I started at around 7:45 am, and it was a little crowded. I recommend going when the trails first open at 6:30

Nice hike, trail very well maintained and marked. Instead of the out and back, I did the Fossil Valley Trail and another trail on the way back to make it a loop - I’d recommend that!

This trail was pretty busy and clearly marked. Some parts of it were pretty rocky and elevation decline and incline is very apparent. But worth it when you reach the top.

This trail was a bit intense with a lot of steep stair like lifts. With that struggle came an amazing view to wonder at that was well worth it!

Harvey traffic, the terrain is not easy, and dogs must be on leash.
