The trail is dry right now. No mud or snow.

Don’t be fooled by the first part of this hike, the second half is quite difficult. What makes it difficult is the terrain, steepness, and the lack of a defined trail. Watch out for poison oak and cacti on the actual path, I had to go off the designated trail to avoid these in some places. When I was avoiding those factors or I couldn’t find the trail I hiked up the creek bed. Be sure to have steady feet and the will/ability to hike a hard terrain if you want to do this hike.

My dog loved the hike and wore her out pretty good. Bring water for sure for your dog. This hike is completely exposed and will be extremely hot in the summer.

Gave this hike a 4 stars because it was a great/hard hike up with some great views. Almost gave it 3 stars because the view at the top was just okay. But sometimes it is the journey and not the destination that makes a trip, right?
