    Parking can be tough. If you can't find any make sure you check the signs along side the road if you do park there. I saw tons of people getting tickets.

    It's a great trail and the view from there, when you hike to the top is phenomenal. Not that long of a hike, around 2.5 miles.

    It can get hot. There is almost no shade except for when the trail curves back and forth along the canyon wall. It’s also rather steep, so only strong runners can run the entire way. Bring water! Read more

    Pet PSA... If you have a dog off a leash please pay attention to where he/she is at & what he/she is doing--as in taking a dump. Who wants to look at and smell poo on a lovely trail? Responsibility.
