Type of HikeDay hike
Trail ConditionsMinor obstacles posing few problems
RoadRoad suitable for all vehicles
BugsBugs were not too bad
The hike up probably took around 40 minutes or so and the heat was a little hard for about a third of the trail even with cloudy skies, so water is obviously a must. There were still flowers blooming, purple aster and pink penstemon along with a white flower I can't identify (I don't think it's a prairie star). I was also lucky enough to spot the tail end of a western skink! I had no idea we had such colorful reptiles in this state.
