    This trail has some nice views and it's an easy since it's mostly a fire road/packed dirt. The downside is there's very little shade so it's not the greatest choice during the summer unless you do it early in the day before it gets too hot. If you take a dog with you make sure you bring plenty of water for the both of you. Even though it's a short trail the incline makes for a great workout.

    Trail was good. Some parts are narrow which hinders passing. Incline was not bad. I would say it is a 4 incline on a tredmill. I will do it again next week

    Nice uphill climb! You will definitely get a work out on this trail. Do not do this trail on a hot sunny day. The uphill is nearly shadeless. The only downside to this trail is that it is very crowded on the weekends. Day parking is $7.00
