This was an awesome hike with great views of the delta and surrounding hills. My boyfriend and I took our dog and let her off leash though the ranger did mention that coyotes have been known to snatch baby calves and small dogs so be mindful of your pup. Tons of wildlife - we saw, jack rabbits, hawks, gophers, owls and lots of vultures. It was super muddy when we went but we did go off trail a bit. Lots of other trails at this preserve so we look forward to returning. Also, be mindful of the cows - there were a couple of aggressive ones who were very protective of their calves.
Easy trail, rolling hills with a few inclined.
Easy & short hike
