I use this trail after a rain or snow when I don't want to damage unpaved trails. Considering the location, it's actually pretty quiet. I'm glad the area is protected!

Extremely easy considering it's paved. It's a nice easy walk with a good view. Watch out for rattle snakes!

It's a nice, easy walking trail especially nice in the early summer when the flowers are out. I've seen rattlesnakes, prairies dogs, coyotes and a variety of raptors and other birds.
