Trail Notes:

This is a fun hike about 6 miles with a few ups to about 1000 ft. I'd say medium difficulty. Test drove it last weekend by myself and spotted a coyote, several deer, and a mountain bunny. Meet me early to beat the heat and in the spirit of socialization I'm including an option to hit the local yogurt shack after the hike. I'll provide directions.
