This trail gives you several options.  This trail is very similar in make up of the more popular Lighthouse trail.  You can even see the Lighthouse from a distance.  You will run into fewer people on this trail and can  adjust your route to suite your time and energy level.  If you want a shorter trail, you can turn around where the trail intersects with the Cottonwood flats and Little Fox loop.  The Little Fox adds an additional couple of miles and is a nice quiet addition.  If you take the Cottonwood flats trail you can head on over to the Lighthouse Trail.  The last quarter mile approach to the Lighthouse will get your heart pumping.  Overall, it is the trail is very enjoyable for an late morning and early afternoon hike with lots of options.
