Very easy hike with amazing views of the Valley. Long enough to make it a good activity. Really good for sunset as well.

I hiked this trail with my husband. I'm not sure if it was because it was extremely windy that day, but we found ourselves a bit lost (despite it seeming simple, it could get a bit confusing at times). Make sure you wear sturdy shoes,...More

Not a lot of shade, so dress accordingly. A hat may be a good idea. Bring water if you are a water-drinking walker.

We lucked out with parking and enjoyed a beautiful hike. The views of the valley were awesome, with many wildflowers blooming. The hike was moderately challenging for us (we are 60-ish). Having plenty of water and a walking stick was helpful. Perfect weather...in the 70's,...More

We set off on a fairly warm day, but not super hot. I am sure this hike would be much more taxing in the hot weather that is the norm for this area. Be sure to carry adequate water. The parking lot at the trail...More

Everything is a private road. It feels like a resident only trail. You have to hike streets to reach the trailhead. No parking signs posted everywhere near the trailhead.
