How I got there: Headed east on Warm Springs and turned right (north) onto Council Springs. It's at the end of the road. Loved this hike! Very green right now with lots of trickling streams and signs of mule deer in the area. Remembered this time to bring a grocery bag--used it to clean up the fire pit garbage at the Old Homestead a little ways off the trail. Highly recommended. Note: If you are a geocacher, there are a handful of fun, easy ones along the trail!

Pretty, very short but nice and leisurely.

Great hike! Not as heavily trafficked as Hulls or Military Reserve, which was nice. Decent, slow climb and great views. It's also nice that you can half the loop for if need be. Don't recommend in the wind though, which was brutal today.

As someone who doesn't normally like foothill-trails or hiking without trees or water, this was a GREAT hike even without these factors. Didn't even notice any elevation gain because it was so gradual the whole time, beautiful wildflowers, GORGEOUS views of the Valley and both mountain ranges. One of the best hikes below the tree line.
