    Good hike early in November. We started by taking the "shortcut" up the singletrack ridge that veers off the main fire road trail. It was plenty steep, but with a pretty oak grove on the summit. This hike provided some beautiful views around the park. You share the trail with herds of cattle, and we saw plenty of hawks and vultures as we went along. The only downside is that it was exposed throughout, and therefore became almost too warm even that this time of year. One other positive is that there are a *lot* of side trails you can choose to increase or decrease mileage as you go.
