You really enjoyed this trail. It was easy to find, plenty of parking in front of the trailhead. There are a lot of trees providing shade throughout most of the way. Although it does goes thru a sunny meadow and the top is treeless. You did this around noon and the sun was not unbearable.

It took me about 3 hours to go to the top and back. But I stopped a few times including a short meditation at the top 🙂 the views are just incredible. I have no idea if I reached inspiration point…the road at the top looked to go on for a loong time but I didn’t continue on. I felt inspired enough at the point I got to lol.

It was a good workout – lots of steep inclines and big steps to conquer. As well as some flat areas for trail running or casual walking to catch your breath.

Ran into quite a few other hikers as well as some bikers…and a horse!
Must see!

If you have kids, this is a very fun little hike because of the many opportunities it gives the kiddies to find frogs and salamanders along the way!

I’m not talking the full hike, just the bottom parts that have creek crossings.
Let’s be honest, little legs can only go so far .
