First off.. the last two miles of the road to get the trailhead are rough... starts out as gravel then turns to uneven pavement with tons of deep pot holes. Not the smartest thing I’ve done by myself in a tiny car. I actually said a prayer! Lol. Also, I am shocked this is rated as moderate. I had to remind myself a time or two that I don’t give up on things while on this one. To put it easy - it’s 4 miles of incline and then 4 miles of decline, appreciate the flat parts. Wildflowers, butterflies and a hummingbird made it worth the ass kicking.
BEWARE OF TICKS. Now that it’s been 3 days since this hike, my dog has now been to the vet - 1 tick turned to 23 ticks very quick. 28 days of antibiotics and now a preventive pills every 90. Careful with your dogs out here
