Did this Hike near the end of October and it couldn't have been a more perfect time. It was cool and crystal clear skies so you could see for miles. There are so many awesome views. It actually took me closer to 5 hours with sitting at the top for lunch and stopping to look and take pictures. This is a really nice well maintained trail that is easy to follow until you get to the top. The only thing that makes this difficult is a very steep climb near the end. For me, the altitude was making it difficult to catch my breath. After reading several reviews I didn't take the full loop but came back the same way. There were so many views I missed on the way up! The instructions say to go thru the white fence opposite the day use area, but there also actually is a trail a bit to the left of that location. The trail and the road behind the fence merge at the sign that says Trail. This was a truly beautiful hike and well worth doing..★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Just do the trail to the left. Skip the right going job the road or coming down it, unless you want to see the pond. There isn’t any shade that way.
