Starts easy by nature trail then transitions to moderate.

Man this was a strenuous hike! I enjoyed it minus the 52 traffic noise. That was kind of a buzz kill. There are several different trails that branch out from the north perimeter trail. Overall fun hike, bring your poles and shoes with good traction!

Fun hike, we really enjoyed this trail.

Beautiful trail .. the end is worth it

Pretty boring hike.

This whole area has a lot of hiking options, obscure back trails, and spots to post up. it was really nice to see the large amount of flowing water.

Great hike! If you start by Saddle Trail be careful with the super steep descent at perimeter trail; plan for good ankle hiking shoes Canyon Oak trail is gorgeous!

loved the stairway to haven

Good workout.

This such a great loop! Lots of scenic views with the inlets of the lake! Get there early- parking fills us fairly quickly after sunrise on the weekends!

Quiet short hike

gotta love the steps near the end! great workout and great view.

I took this walk at night for the serenity. it was very pleasant. the suspension bridge was very nice, the old houses and buildings were beautiful. Really nice time.

Great hike and nice trail and view at the top. Only bad part is the high amount of traffic. Best to go on a week day if possible.

nice trail

Nice hike if you can keep going at a steady pace. Too crowded for my taste, had to stop too many times for others. Seems more like a tourist hike. Going to try again, maybe super early = less crowds?

It was a good hike and the trail was pretty clean, sucks when it's busy-constantly passing ppl coming back down

Good for trail running.
