Great hike but get there really early

1 day ago

This trail is great for first time hikers. All the traffic on the trail helps to navigate the direction to go.

Very beautiful trail but very busy with people. Would love to do it again when it's not the weekend!

A real good hike. Puts you right below the cliffs west of bell rock.

This trail is not for the faint of heart. If you like rugged trails and having to scramble, then this trail is for you. If you're looking for an easy stroll, then look elsewhere. Dogs are not allowed on the trail, FYI.

Well marked and well maintained. Go early in the morning or in the evening and bring plenty of water. There are not a lot of spots to stop and get some shade, depending on the time of day.

Wow, what a fun loop to do, 5 miles is a great length to get back into things. Going to make this part of my regular weekly walk! Its getting hot, so leave early and bring water.

I really enjoyed this hike. The bathrooms at the trailhead are very clean too. We took the extra .33 and did the harder vista valley trail - totally worth it with 360 degree views. I loved seeing the mountain views. We took our dog and she had an easy time with it. This was our first hike since moving here and we loved it. We arrived around 7:20am and the parking lot was relatively full however the trail was not over crowded. When we left at 9:40 the parking lot had less cars.

Sweet walk, long uphill when doing this hike counterclockwise. Saw about three people total. Great peaceful walk will definitely do this Eleven-miler her again.
