  • Such a good workout and a beautiful trail with amazing wildflowers. TONS of parking. Well marked. And the sweetest man at the top taking great pictures and filling us with stats. Such a great day!!
  • Paved road to the trail head and restroom facilities at the start of it. The trail itself had a pretty hefty incline during the first half. Definitely caught myself taking more breaks than usual, but it was a great workout. I’m thankful I had my trekking poles with me, especially going downhill because the path had a lot of loose gravel where it’s easy to slip on. I went early on a Friday morning and it wasn’t very crowded at all. Definitely recommend!
