After 2 miles or so, we passed a junction where the trail splits. One part goes over to Upper Oso and the other continues on the Aliso Loop. Upper Oso will happen another day. Shortly after this junction, we reached the pinnacle of our journey – a small summit marked by a couple of makeshift stools – and then we began our descent back to Sage Hill.
This hike is great for beginners and is well-marked. The trail is mostly dirt, which is great for people with knee and ankle issues. This was definitely one of the nicest hikes I’ve had in awhile.
