Paved trail that loops from park entrance to Arroyo Rd.
perfect day for a nice hike.
It was a nice and clean, and I like the fact you have the options. There was the paved path then some that were of the main strip.
Easy trail with great parking. The park seems to be empty most of the time. My family and I headed out right before sunset and had to run a mile back to the car. The ranger was about to lock our car in the lot overnight. Be sure to make it to your car by sunset and not a moment after!
This is a small park on the edge of a housing development but with the feel of rangeland or farmland. The hillsides are very steep. Right now at the end of February, however, they are covered with blue dicks and buttercups. There is also a lot of yarrow and soap weed along the dirt hiking trail, but they are not blooming yet. Very few hikers were present, along with a trail runner or two. The weather was quite windy with a light mist. A paved recreational trail leads into the park, where a dirt hiking trail can be taken on a short loop hike of about three miles around and through the upper section of the park. The dirt trail is in excellent condition.
