Great hike, definitely a workout 

My wife and I completed this hike today and it was pretty nice. We started at the Meridian Road parking lot and did the full loop counterclockwise. The east side (first half) was good climbing and got our heart rate up. Not too difficult though. Great views all along the way. We found the trail on the west side much easier than the east side. The last third across the south was very flat sand and rock. Although the desert is nice we didn't enjoy that as much as the elevated parts of the trail. Met quite a few people on trail but it was still mostly quiet and nice. Excellent trail for a moderate hiker.

I enjoyed this hike. It a bit rocky but with proper shoes it was just fine. We got to the 'saddle' without problem within 1 hour and it is nice view! Met a gentleman at the top who told us the trail continued to the north and swung around to join up with Pass Mountain trail. We went about 1.5 km down the trail but then it disappeared (or we lost it). After searching for the trail for 30 minutes we gave up and returned the way we came. I wouldn't recommend that 'add-on' unless you know exactly where you are going. Overall an enjoyable hike!
