Very pretty views but it was too cold and windy so we turned around, we will come back and try again. Trail is covered in snow.

HikingMuddy

A nice easy hike, we did it as a loop starting from the Red Rock trailhead, following the signs for the Lexi and Ethan trail, and then following the Red Potato trail back to the parking lot. There are lots of bikers, so you need to watch out. The trail was a little bit muddy a couple of days after a rainfall. The dog loved the trail, there were lots of deer tracks and she was sniffing around those.

All downhill to the bottom and back up. Other trails intersect to extend the ride.

HikingGreat!

A decent trail. Barely any shade so go when it’s not so hot. A fun short easy trail!

Hiking

We loved the hiking/walking part of the trail. The trail was so narrow that we were constantly stepping to the side for bikers. The signs were a little confusing, as the trail crosses several other trails. There was shade for a part of the hike. Overall a good shorter hike.

Fun quick hike. If you take it down to the BST and wrap around you can make a nice loop out of it. Take a diversion to the top of the hill as well. Nice views. Hot with only scrub oak.

Some confusion of where we were going. A good amount of mountain bikers. Awesome that you get to see a lot of angles.

Very easy hike with a decent amount of shade. Not too many people were on the trail. It started downhill and the way back was an easy grade up the hill. Definitely worth a quick hike.

Hiking

Really easy trail. It starts from the parking lot where clean bathrooms are available. Lots of bikers on a Saturday so you’re constantly stepping off the trail to let them pass (which was okay because it got my kids interested in the sport and people are getting outside!). Though they were all very kind with great trail etiquette, we were all kind of over moving off the trail every few minutes by the time we were done. As a result, I would not do this trail again but try to find less busy traffic trails if possible. Lots of pretty trees and shade once you get further down! Beautiful view of the valley early in and a fun little creek and bridge the kids loved exploring in! Only saw a few doggy bags but overall the trail was clean.

This was a really fun trail for Trail Running. For hiking I could imagine this being a very boring trail. It would be a short easy one if you are just trying to get out. Very dry but the views were nice and it was fun to run.
