Little on the steep side as you get in but still a wonderful hike. 2.3 miles to the lookout. Great dog trail with shade and stream.

Good amount of shade, steep at some parts, cool views. No streams for dogs to drink water at. Lots of great wild flowers blooming right now!

I loved that this hike offered lots of shade in super lush forest areas. Some of the trail is overgrown with bushes though.
