Easy hike. Very nice scenery. Some cool geocaches along the trail.

Gained some altitude to get above the morning fog (marine layer).

A very nice hike! Lots of ups and downs and the trail is very well marked. Bring lots of water.

Knocked it out today with my PCT gear. Great workout. Awesome views with the clouds. Water on this hike now too, although not enough to really drink.

This trail is a loop if you continue along the road after it closes to vehicles. you have a view of the lake for most of the hike, which is beautiful and peaceful.

I had a lot of fun, it was all uphill until coming back down so lots of cardio for us since we were jogging. It got really steep so be careful I fell twice lol. The view from the top of the mountain is beautiful!

The recent rains made this an incredible hike. Perfect for my two grandkids. Nothing like getting a little muddy when your a kid. Would have given it a 5 but it was too short for me.
