Nice walk. Lots of critters. Nothing too exciting.

I'm from back East and am used to hiking in "the green tunnel." This is a fantastic change of scenery. Great trail with some fun technical pieces for beginner scramblers. Make sure to watch for the white dots. They are there but sometimes you have to search for them. A great mix of rock scrambling, dirt/sandy path, views, and flat wide trails. We got a little off trail at the northernmost end but thanks to GPS we located the Peavine trail easily. We elected to stay on this trail rather than access the lakeshore trail portion just because we were running out of daylight. I recommend allowing 3 hours so you have time to stop and enjoy the views.

So close to home and there are more trails than this. The wildlife is abundant Sooo many dragonflies!

There were some pretty parts with the rock formations and lake. However, it got EXTREMELY buggy and it made it impossible to enjoy the hike. Also, anytime we would get close to the water it reaked and smelled like sewage. It was hard to enjoy anything about this hike.
