There was a variety in the landscape and moderately challenging terrain. The final view is breathtaking!!!!

Very well maintained trail, lots of pretty forest, rewarding view at the end. Really fun trail to run down too! Can be very, very busy but it's easy to avoid crowds by going on weathery days, early in the morning, or during the week.

Good for a workout, nice because it isn't terribly busy, but not my favorite trail. I use it to escape busy days, but that's about it.

I love this trail! In late winter/early spring it is a beautiful and quiet trail. In summer this trail is incredibly popular and probably should be avoided on weekends if at all possible. Right now with all the rain it has been lush and gorgeous and should definitely be visited. We've hiked it 5 times this spring, and will be up again this week to love it one more time before summer madness sets in. Highly recommended!

This is my favorite cardio spot near the valley! Nice heart pumping hike. Not too hard, not too easy. I feel confident taking my dog on this hike as there are no sketchy parts, and there is usually plenty of socializing for him up top (this hike allows off-leash dogs on odd numbered days of the month) which he loves. Take plenty of water and/or hike early because there are plenty of steep climbs in direct sun. I definitely recommend this hike, and do it as often as possible!
