There are varying elevations which are easy to moderate with nice scenic views. There are also about 6 streams to walk through which are very refreshing for hot feet and your furry friend(s). Wear loose clothing and comfortable CLOSED TOE shoes. Also, make sure you bring plenty of water and a camera. There were several dogs off leash. Read the mountain lion sign before you start (which are not often seen but...)!

Not a good trail for winter. Crossing halfway frozen rivers/streams for at least the first mile and the trail is not marked well. 2 miles in I fell through one of the rivers.....I wasn't the only one.

Quick fun trail that was surprisingly flat for all the elevation gain. Good to do on hot days as most of the trail is in the shade.
