Parking lot was packed so I figured trail would be high traffic. Turns out everyone goes there to kayak, the trail was completely empty. Plenty of shade, quiet, and an awesome view.

if you want an easy hike, just do the painted rock trail. knothead summit is climb, be prepared. well worth the trek up.

Make sure to bring water if you intend to do the full loop, as it is strenuous going up the hill. This was my first serious hike this year, and my body wasn't really ready for it. I enjoy challenges though, and I made it around (with a slight variation at the "top").
