We did the Lookout Trail. Good signage, clean trail(no dog poop) not crowded. The trail is in shade so trekking in high sun is ok too. Moderate uphill climb.

A little hard for small kids but short enough to bear it out. A bit dusty and kids can skid and fall is not careful.

Very enjoyable track. Not easy for trail runner due to some steep uphills and downhills. Watch your knees :).
Great shaded trail with some great landscape view.

Fairly easy to reach look out point hiking trail. Very beautiful, no fresh running water or waterfalls. Easy drive to reach hiking area. Smooth ride a short distance in. The villa is pretty along with the garden and statues.

Short trail but since it's close to us it was worth it. Allowing dogs is a plus
