    Our trip was over President's Day weekend in February 2007 on a very pleasant Sunday morning. We found the trail to be a nice combination of different environments and a nice but very "do-able" challenge for a group comprising a mix of first-time hikers to weekend-warrior types. The views were nice and the trail in reasonable condition. The trail only earns 3 stars because we felt that compared to some other routes we've tried, particularly in and around Mount Tam in Marin, the landscape was less dynamic and awestriking

    Our group of 6 used a single pair of tevas which were thrown back and forth across the river to eliminate the need to hike around in wet boots.

    Very strenuous ride. An uphill - downhill rollercoaster ride with lovely ridge top views. Suggest doing it during the spring or fall. A Very dusty trip. Make sure that your brakes work because on this ride, you will need them.
