Trail Notes:

This is a tough hike, with fairly steep uphill grades. It will take about 35 - 60 minutes to reach the ridge (depending on personal speed), then turns into fairly easy rolling up and down grades.

The first part of this hike is the most difficult. For beginner or novice types, it will seem like the steepest dirt trail you've ever experienced, and you might find you only want to go to the first "ridge". That part may well take you 45 minutes to an hour to complete. No matter how difficult, I encourage you to take your time and venture onward until you reach the top. This is a great trail for cardio workouts, whether your goal is to lose weight, or simply get in shape, this is the trail for you!

For the veteran hikers, this first part may slow you down a bit, but I expect you'll reach the very top within 30 - 40 minutes. And we'll continue to the left (south) from there.

We will continue until we reach a barbed wire fence. At that point turn right and proceed along a narrow grass trail until you reach a tree. We'll take a short rest break, then turn back around and proceed back the same way we came.

Bring lots of water along! You may need it! Despite the difficult start, overall, this is a moderate 2 hour hike round trip.

Dogs are permitted on this trail!
