Beautiful trail! We did this trail a few weeks ago and it was pretty dry, but I can see it getting super muddy and fun when it rains. Moderate hike and the fees were gorgeous.

Muddy and steep but a lot of fun! Try to go on a sunny day so you can see everything clear; clouds will obstruct your view

Nice train with great view and scenic shots. Worth bringing a camera. Trail is do-able for any age group. Bring lots of H2O because there's not too much shade; preferable to go in the morning or when there's clouds

A favorite of mine. A few locals call it the booty hike because it's all uphill (until you come back down of course). The trail is to the right. If you go to the left through the big field you'll come to stairs climbing through an opening of trees/bushes. There's a gate but it's ok to climb through and go up. It takes you to a beautiful place of healing and views. There is an alter where locals leave gifts/offerings. It's stunning up there.

I love hiking this trail. In the right time of year, it's blooming with wild raspberries ripe for picking. I usually go up when it's cloudy so that I can hike in the dense fog. Very eerie. This hike is only difficult at the VERY beginning where there's a steep cement driveway, but after that first 0.1 miles, it's mild and smooth.

Also, it's often muddy, so be prepared for that, too.

Insanely muddy. Bring proper shoes and make sure you grab a walking stick. This is not a hike for novices. Stunning views throughout. A must do for outdoorsy folks.

Great hike! Geology is great: pillow basalts and gem quality olivine crystals. You'll see beautiful wild flowers and lots of wildlife. The views are spectacular.
