The trail head is well marked but the trail is quiet with the best view of Trinity. Very quiet. Do the connecting trails as well. Moderate steepness.

Gunhill trail provides Fantastic views, gets the heart going, and a nice little step away from the summer tourism going on within Trinity (not that it's bad at all but if you like to step away from the crowd...)

This is a very short trail with moderate to challenging terrain and the effort is well worth your efforts. We enjoyed this quiet, uncrowded hike. Tons of Blueberries!

Trail became more scenic as it went on. Started with Lower Gun hill and glad I did the full loop. Enjoyed the variety of sights.

Hi - It takes about 20 minutes or so. Some sections are a little steep, but otherwise a very pleasant walk. There's parking on the street at the foot of the trail.
