Hot! 114 degrees! However, still gorgeous. I have two New Englanders with me, they were sweaty but enthralled with the scenery. Just be cautious with the roads, not quite as on the map.

Wouldn't recommend this trail if it's going to rain, many wash crossings plus parts of the trail are the wash itself. Lots of side trails at the beginning to see new areas. Very pretty trail for being so close to the city

Cool views. Trail is a lot of blow sand so appropriate shoes a must. It is steep in places but the trails crew has installed steps. Take water

Did this today along with the Norski. Both are pretty short. This one can burn your legs if you don't watch out. It is a great workout-I think the overall gradient is about 15-20%. As a hiking trail it is ok, but my preference is for longer trails.

This is the easiest trail (above 10k elevation) I have found in the SF area. Nice to ski in winter too. Today the flies were out in force especially near the trailhead. Good trail for an easy run at altitude.

Nicely maintained (BLM) 3/4-1 mile paved trail (handicap friendly-including wheelchairs), with 14 'information points' so you learn about the Lava field, wildlife & plants of the area. Takes 60-90 minutes and has good photography capability throughout. Better to go early morning/evening to see/hear more wildlife moving about. There are also numerous picnic & camping areas with water/electric & dump stations, & restrooms/showers. Information/gift shop has BLM maps, as well as other related books-including children's books/toys. Definitely could/will do this again!

Great trail with Amazing views! If you want to make it to the lake though make sure you have Hiking boots and Trekking sticks. The last mile you encounter snow and you need to be properly prepared or its a bit dangerous! Overall great trail!
