Pretty good hike- I like that it is dog friendly
I live above the trail and hike it once or twice a week. I love how quiet it is. It's a great in town escape for an hour or two. I have 4 dogs, 3 of which are cattle dogs and they love hiking it with me.
You're down in a valley for most of the way, so the views are pretty limited. But there are some creeks, and lots of wildflowers, and tons of birds. Saw a Lesser Goldfinch and a Western Bluebird there a few days ago. Will hike here again!
Can get steep closer to the golf course. But a fun way to spend a couple hours.
Pleasant early morning walk with dogs
Nice trail to bring the dogs. Lots of birds to see. It is a good place for runners and bikes too.
