This is a fun little hike up off of Colima. It takes you through a tunnel that goes under Colima and there's some really nice scenery on the trail. Saw a few jack rabbits and plenty of birds, definitely a nice nature walk. Some mild inclines but definitely suitable for beginners. Would hike it again for sure.

Went on the trail around 6pm and did not see anyone on the trail, took my time taking pictures and I got back at sunset, 730pm.

A very good set of trails that has three paths. The short ones allow for dogs but it seems most owners (esp small dogs) don't pick up the poop and you'll see it a lot on those trails unfortunately. The trail to the right (no dogs) that crosses over Colima I would say is more intermediate with the inclines in elevation and wildlife but seems less as populated than the shorter trails. Parking is small and can get packed quick depending on the time of day but you can park across by the baseball field or church as mentioned. Overall it's a decent trail and I will be back more often.
