Leisurely. A community trail, with an after-dinner stroll often sharing the trail with someone who mountain-biked in for a night ride. Great mix of wildlife - watch for rattlesnakes (learn from me...). Take someone for a walk here, and you'll convince them to join you somewhere more remote next time.
A good open trail with varied terrain and vegetation. The trail offers views of Lake Hodges from different altitudes. The knowledge gained from the trail was neat but at some point I wondered if the interpretations were still appropriate - the description of plants which were no longer around. I didn't see much wildlife midday other than butterflies, birds, and bugs. Take plenty of water and slather on the sunscreen - there was but a few parts of the trail that were covered. Met a few bikers who, at certain rockier areas, had to carry their bikes.
This is a great leisure trail, I take my mountain bike here regularly because it offers easy routes and if I so desire I am close to more challenging hill climbs which are part of the many interconnected trails. The views of the surrounding hills and the lake are just awesome too. I take new comers here a lot to show them the small streams and waterfalls too. A great place for the family to hike or bike.
