Personal Experience: I remember hearing many years back that Tooth Rock was used as a marker for Native Americans during their long journeys. Ever since then I have been interested in visiting this spot. I was certainly not disappointed once I finally visited it! Tooth Rock is impressively large up close and offers a beautiful view of the valley. The hike is not too strenuous, although there is a hill you have to climb so be ready for it! The trail up the hill is filled with rocks, making it a bit difficult to climb. Make sure to wear proper hiking shoes.
This area gets a very showy display of wildflowers in the springtime:
You have a mild hill to climb. I'd pick the cooler months or an early morning/evening to do this hike:
