First, I'll start out by saying I am not a hiker. This trail is enjoyable and I did fine on it. My favorite time to go is in when the temperature is 60*, or below because I am not a fan of snakes. Wonderful photography,...More

It certainly took some energy to make it to the top, but it was definitely worth it! Fantastic views on the way up and beautiful spot at the top of Mt Kimball, about a 1/4 mile beyond the summit sign.

Great day hike. Easy access makes this a very popular trail. Uphill all the way to Mt Kimball. The first mile is gentle but then start climbing steeply. Spectacular views, very rugged. Be careful on the decent since dirt and sand makes the rocks slippery....More
