Good hike for a quick afternoon. Great payoff at the ridge with amazing views of the desert. Not much shade half way to to the turn around point. Easy to miss the turn off the Pacific Crest Trail, so pay attention or do your research. Dogs loved the hike. Some wildlife- a few turkey, a fox and. A lot of birds.
Did this hike after it snowed. We barely saw any people, except for some mountain bikers at the very beginning. Great trail to do in the winter when there's snow, or in the spring when the grass is green and the lake is full. Definitely not a difficult trail, so it's great to do sections of it with little kids. I'm looking forward to doing the whole trail when there's no snow on the ground.
