HIKE WALKTHROUGH: This hike begins with a relatively flat walk along horse stables continuing with some steeper rolling and uphill areas. Rain has resulted in scattered wildflowers and some overgrown areas, so long pants are recommended. Quite a bit of the trail is exposed so sunglasses, sunscreen and plenty of hydration is a must.

DOG-FRIENDLY?: Yes, but must be kept on a leash, and should be friendly with other dogs and hikers. You must pick up after your pet.
