My favorite place for a trail run! Be careful... Tons of tarantulas and a few coyotes crossed my path several times. Stay alert!

So close to home, but out of reach when out there, was a splendid run.

love this trail!! We did the 8 mile trail and got in over 20k steps. Took the babies in carriers for extra weight, they have added more bench areas throughout for quick snack stops. Overall a tough trail of you are planning on trucking most of it and adding in some running. Lots of up and down with steep hills and tons of nature around you. I suggest using a camelback, because carrying anything in your hands will take a toll, especially since the trail isn't very laid out for humans to walk on so be careful!

Turned this 7.5 mile hike into 11.14 miles. Beautiful rolling trails. Nothing difficult. It took 3 hours and 8 minutes to complete this hike. It was a nice easy stroll for me. great distance hike with some speed, but no challenge of steep inclines and elevation gains. Great for family hikes/picnics, however pets are not allowed and the fines are steep.
