This hike is ALL uphill! A good workout, but not the relaxing hike I was looking for. Lots of lizards and some small snakes, bugs, and tons of poison oak if you’re not careful (it’s all off the trail, but keep an eye on dogs). The view was pretty, but no mountains. Hardly any shade too, glad I went on an overcast day! It was fine, but I didn’t expect it to be so steep.
There was a family with 3 small kids that started before us and we didn’t pass them on the way down so hopefully that gives you a good idea.
Trail head is just as others stated, there’s a pull off on the left to park, go past the gate and shortly after on your right is the entrance. Private property at the very end so you turn around and go downhill.
