Hike Summary: Beautiful hike with many large trees. Great Hike to take a family with small kids on. We even brought along our dog! I rated it Easy to strenuous because it climbs a hill 1/2 the way, then heads down hill the 2nd half. For experienced hikers it is easy, but for less experienced it would be moderate. If you only have a couple hours to hike-- this is it! Nice Picnic area and "flush" restrooms at the Parking lot
