I hiked just the first mile up to the vista point and back. It was an enjoyable hike and my children, 7 and 5, were easily able to make it up and back down. My 2 year old even did most of the mile back down. The whole 4 miles would probably been too much for them. The view was beautiful, and the perfect place for a picnic.

Did this trail today with my grandkids ages 8-16. Very doable. I am also a large (aka obese) woman and I was able to do it with being just a little bit winded. Take water and wear comfortable good shoes. Beautiful views at the peak and there is a picnic table at the top. People have been great about taking their garbage out or someone just cleaned it up because we did not see any trash. Saw a few mountain bikers and a few dogs. Well maintained and easy to share with everyone. Horses also use this trail but we did not see any today.

Great trail with very gradual elevation gain. It’s a nice wide dirt path, lots of shade and plenty of views throughout most of the hike. Would definitely do this one again.

Great sunny day before Thanksgiving. Lots burned tree but inspirational growth coming in too.

Most of the trail has views of just the trail and mostly manzanita, I guess I was spoiled by the chamise hike .

Love this hike so much.

Good bike ride with girls; down to goats on Buenaventura via Teton then back up north side of Buenaventura trail

Not much shade in certain parts, and pretty good climb. I made the mistake of going with my dog when it was almost 100 this summer and I liked the hike but was a little miserable.

Still warm in October due to lack of shade from the burnt trees. #carrfire Suggest going early morning. (85 degrees)

Great time of year to hike. October It’s a steady climb, but worth it when you get to the top. Fairly easy. For the most part in the shade. Will do it again

Great trail! Very secluded and pretty much handrails the sac river. Dog friendly. Trail has some areas that are multi track and single track. Walked my 3 dogs down about 3 miles of the full trail. Very pleasant experience, I’ll definitely be back on this trail again.

Great trail. Keep your gps on so you don’t go onto the wrong trail. They are marked but you can still miss them easily.

Very pretty, mostly flat, shady. Dog-friendly and I felt safe the whole 4 miles.

It is a nice, well paved trail. Not a lot o f shade. Very nice though.

We went on to explore some more ended up going up up up on a fire trail. Turned into a 13 mile hike. My 11 year old puppies were soooo tired.

Simple hike with absolutely gorgeous views. The well maintained trail spirals up for a slow steady climb. From the top you can see the river and the dam, its 360° of beauty.

Great views! Started out with the intention of doing the 4.66 trail, but ended up going all the way to Shasta Dam. Great hike but I was exhausted after the 15.68 hike. Bring plenty of water as it was still pretty warm in October. #onestepatatime

Beautiful, clean, paved trail. Very scenic and peaceful. Good trail for kids, only issue was shade was fairly sporadic.

The bike trail was closed at three point. One was just a two day closure to clean up the fire debris. The other two the trail was washed out. Had to be creative in finding a way back onto the trail. Ride is great, roads are free of debris. All trails made my ride not only salvageable but worry free

great in spring! dead and dry in summer, but its it's close to our house so we go quite a bit. its very easy, we take our 4year old and pups on it. in the spring there is a creek that the pups can cool off in and there is a vista point (it's labled) that you can stop for a snack or a picture.

awesome endurance booster. this climb is a beast

easy flat and beautiful running trail. easy to find the way. would def. recomend.

Lots of good smells, nice path for hiking or running. Good trail for pugs!

Great hike. Temp 75* 12 other people on the trail. My watch says 4.79 miles and 655 elevation gain. You want to do this hike on a cool day. The views at The top are terrific, worth the hike up. No faculties. Bring water
