This was a very beautiful train almost the entire way. We were only able to do 4.5 miles. I recommend this to everyone.

I've done the hike from the gate to the top a bunch of times. It's so close and convenient to the city.
It can be done all on the road. I prefer to take the trail on the left at about the first picnic spot. It continues to just short of the water treatment plant and then you have to take the road the rest of the way. Lots of shade with a few exposed stretches.
When I did it today (7/4) there was no water above the 12th picnic spot so fill up and take plenty.
There is lots of wildlife all up and down the canyon. Today I saw a turkey and a garter snake and a world of butterflies. I've seen coyotes, deer ,elk lots or birds, a bobcat and much more.
I'm 71 and can do the round trip in 31/2 hrs hiking time and just under 4hr total. . If I can do it you can too. I think you'll really enjoy it.
