Hike Elfin Forest - Way Up Trail/Cielo Trail

The Elfin Forest hike is a good little hike close to home. It is a little strenuous on the way up, about 1100 feet of elevation gain in the first 1.3 miles, but the way back is easy. The bonus is the view from the top. But, to make it a little more fun/challenging, I have added on the Cielo trail. After reaching the lake, we will head over to the top of the dam and then follow the Cielo trail down to the base and then follow it a little further. This will add about another two miles total to the hike.

This hike will end up being a little under 5 miles. Bring a snack and plenty of water and I will see you out there!
