First time hiking this trail on Veteran's Day 2015 and I very much enjoyed it with great hiking friends. We did a huge hiking loop via Cardio Hill and ended with in area with a cool stack of Boulder Rocks.

I love this trail! There is a loop hike that's about 6 miles. Lots to see here and the trail wanders in and out of oak groves. Great Sunday morning hike.

We did a loop similar to the one described below: about .3 mi in, we forked left to cross the creekbed, and continued along the exposed trail. We took a side trail straight up to a fantastic vantage point, then came back down the same way and rejoined the trail heading north, I believe. Eventually we were able to turn right and connect back with the actual canyon trail, returning through the trees and along the wash/trail. The whole loop was about 4.6 with our side trip up the hill. Really pretty...and so quiet!
