Lots of fun for a hike. Not too difficult but certainly not easy. Out of area hikers need to be prepared. Go early as the hike gets hot - have a good supply of water. Very varied terrain so you'll need to be prepared. Enjoy...

I thought it was one the the most fun. It had rocks to climb, woods to go through, and creeks to cross. I loved it. The only difference with the other hikes, was there was no view at the top.

We didn't make it that far but it was still a scenic hike. We hiked about 1 hour each way. Our dog is 10, and it was a warm day. Lots of wildflowers wildflowers in Spring.
