Im a beginner hiker so for me this was amazing, those 3 first hills give you an amazing cardio workout for sure!!! I was going to do both north and south hike but we was running out of water so we couldn't and we did the hike at 10 am so it was definitely HOT !!! Tho we survived lol but you do need a lot of water to hike that over all I loved that hike, the views, there was no lake when I went and we went to a section where there's a bunch of threes and catch some shade and makes for amazing pictures totally recommend it I am doing it again and hopefully I'll do the south one also for sure

I hiked the canyon at 10am, I own a husky and we could not finish the hike. Though the temps said 68 degrees in the parking lot. There are many places along the trail that are recessed and do not have air flow..making it hotter than the devil's crotch in some places. My dog is a well seasoned hiker, is regularly brushed every 3 days, is almost 2yrs, loves the outdoors, and he was having a hard time. We stopped frequently for water breaks, but it was not enough. I did not feel the risk to my dog overheating was worth finishing the trail. I STRONGLY do not recommend starting this hike after 9am on a nice day in june even with plenty of breeze in the parking lot and bringing water. We got about 90% done and turned back. I will attempt this hike again either early in the morning (8am) or late in the evening as the sun is going down.

Very pleasant, fun and I say to hike.

I did this hike yesterday. I strongly suggest that you bring a lot of water. It's really hot out there! I've done this hike before but never in the summer. The heat makes this relatively moderate hike into a very hard slog.
