Good run, rocky and watch out for the ice if you're running it during the winter. It is more of a leg workout than a cardio one if you're running on the rocky narrow paths, because you have to slow down and watch your footing.

So convenient. A great hiking area right in the middle of the city. Easy trails to moderate trails. Great views to boot! I've been hiking there for 10 years now.

Visit Palmer Trails for the first time and we like it. Great area to spend a nice day out hiking. The Trails are great to walk and some areas you can climb up within the trail system which give you a little challenge during the hike. The bad thing is the markers and signs throughout the Trails. Some markers were unreadable and some signs did not have the maps.
Other than that it is a great trail system and easy to park and find.
