This is a simple, short hike, appropriate for beginners and perhaps kids. Most of the uphill occurs in the first half mile. After the first mile, it's pretty much all downhill.
Keep taking all the right turns if you want the shortest possible loop. There are lots of choices you can make along the way to extend your route or try different directions. You can drive a bit farther to the second parking lot for other choices and there looks to be horses there too.
