Hiked counterclockwise. Moderate to easy hike but relatively long at 9 miles. I hiked during a weekday in order to avoid the mountain bikers. This trail is well known as a favorite for bikers. Still a nice hike worth returning to. On the day I hiked the final 1.5 miles of the trail was closed which required a walk along the highway back to the trailhead. Total hiking time: 3 hours.

It is a very steep incline but the view is very pretty. Very steep probably too difficult to run safely unless you go very slow.
