Took our kids from the parking lot onto the a longhorn trail then Maverick then back by way of Sawmill. It was about a 2.5+/- mile trip with 6 kids ages 4-10yrs. It was a great hike, not too difficult for anyone. A few steep parts but no more than 10yards in distance so it wasn't "constant climbing". Tons of flowers, conifers, and beautiful views of both the valley below and surrounding mountains. Great trip!

Thousand foot elevation gain or more in the first 2 miles. Rocky narrow trails some tricky areas for horses in steep terrain. Many mountain bikes beautiful views, varied ecological systems to go through. I am rating the whole White Ranch trail system. Many trails bicycles are polite. Shoes a must. Upper parking lot avoids steep hot dry ROCKY acent .

We took the Belcher Trail the whole way, and it was tough but worth it. Great views, not too crazy busy, and lots of trail options. I'd really like to come back and do the backpacking/camping options in the White Ranch Open Space. Nice trailhead parking lot, make sure to grab a map.

White Ranch has a nice selection of trails and this day I chose the 5+ mile Rawhide Trail. The valleys, wild flowers and birds of many species are beautiful. You make a long loop so the scenery is constantly changing. I loved it!
