Loved it. Good calf burner down to devils hole and back up to the ridge. Suggest that it is not too hot, because shade is spotty. Great views, water for the dogs in devils hole (Feb). A little disappointing that it went straight down and then straight up again. Not much meandering. Fairly busy on the ridge side going down to the parking lot.
This is a wonderful trail with so much variety...views, botany, fossils, and more. The wind caves, just a short hike off-trail, are great to explore. We loved the variety of plants blooming. There are fossils of an old seabed just lying about on the ridgetop...and plenty of ups and downs to get good exercise. Finally, a sense of wildness in a big metro area.
