Lots of mountain bikers - need to come back to bike it. Lots of rocks, but good for balance! Great uphill hike. Beautiful views! Did in 50 minutes.

Easy to moderate hike. It took me 45 minutes to hike it to the end of the trail. Yes, there is some loose gravel but nothing too crazy. The views are great. This is a great hike if you are visiting the city and have a few spare hours.

Love this hike a lot. Just be careful because toward the end there are steep hills with loose gravel. ALSO it’s easy to get on the wrong path with the trails that meet with it so I would have this handy dandy map out.

pretty easy, quick hike. Really beautiful views of the city. There is a lot of loose gravel is some of the "peaks". The rest is pretty much dirt. Would definitely do it again.

Fun and beautiful hike, but it was pretty hard and the steepest part is at the end. Definitely took more than an hour.

A great quick morning hike that'll get your heart pumping. Lots of runners and bikers around here and very dog friendly

Awesome quick but strenuous hike. I got up to the peaks in about an hour. Fantastic views all around and below to the city.

Awesome hike with a gradual, not too strenuous, incline on the way up. Great scenery and views of the city. Mountain bikers use the trail as well so be aware and courteous along the trail.

Great shorter hike! It’s pretty much straight up the entire way, but it’s worth it for the views of the city. Dog friendly too!

Great hike for weeknights - close to town, just challenging enough to work up a sweat, and amazing views.

Lovely trail, so close to home but when you get up there, you feel so far away. Perfect for dog walking. The upper route also has a lot less mountain bike traffic.

No snow, no mud. The ridge can get windy.

took my pups up during a storm, beautiful views, trail easily disappears during thr winter so its easy to get turned around in the evening hours but still a great hike.

it's really windy don't wear baseball caps. took my two chihuahuas they did surprisingly well. great for most age groups. easy to spend 2 hours without realizing it so make sure you bring water.

Great hike with full views of the valley. A little muddy this time of year from the melted snow, but nothing to worry about. Great for dogs as well.

I found this to be an enjoyable hike. Though you gain a bit of elevation, the fact you go up and down about 4 to 5 small hills before getting to the twin peaks made it less intense for me (even compared to switchbacks, which this trail doesn't have). We pansied out before the last peak. We only went up to the first peak, so we will have to come back someday to do the second peak. To add... this is our first time doing this trail- the trail had snowy sections, some slightly muddy sections and clear (packed mud with some loose stones) sections. I feel the snow actually made the hike a little easier going up and down some of the hills. I guess when it's not snowy, these paths may have more pebbles and rocks which could make it a bit harder to walk up and down. The good thing with the snow on the path this day was in most places it was packed down or powder, there were very few sections that were slippery, and only near the beginning of the trail did I notice ice... so that made it very enjoyable! (The entire journey took 3 hours - 1.5 hr up, and 1.5 hr back.. but I am a slow hiker....)

Somebody spilled m-and-ms on the first of the two peaks so if you're walking with dogs, watch out. Other than that, this is a challenging short trail with great views of the city and the mountains to the north. Worth it.

Uphill hike from Terrace Hills Drive trailhead up to the ridge trail - then easy trail with a couple of steep uphills on the ridge on the way out to Avenues Twin Peaks. Beautiful view of the entire valley from the second peak. Exposed so take water. Nice in winter too - just wear gaiters.

Beautiful view of the city facing East and gorgeous views of the mountains to the West. You really get the best of both worlds. Very minimal shade on the trail, so be sure to bring lots of water and sunscreen!
