Holly B. on Templeton Trail
Excellent moderate trail. Beautiful views!!
Ernest P. on Edna Mae Bennet Nature Trail
This trail is really quite easy but so beautiful! Right in the heart of the city but you would never know it while you are on any of these trails.
Visit Palmer Trails for the first time and we like it. Great area to spend a nice day out hiking. The Trails are great to walk and some areas you can climb up within the trail system which give you a little challenge during the hike. The bad thing is the markers and signs throughout the Trails. Some markers were unreadable and some signs did not have the maps.
Other than that it is a great trail system and easy to park and find.
Listed as an advanced trail at the park. Great workout, lots of rocks and scrambling, definitely more of a hike than a walk with great views from the top of the rocks. I'd say it would be suitable for older kids, the littles might have a harder time, though, with sometimes uncertain footing on the gravel. Trail splits several times and reconnects with itself, also crosses several other trails so you've got to pay close attention if you want to stay on Templeton.
My pug made the loop, but was pretty wore out by the end. Husband and I enjoyed it.
