Only available to military. While it's not well maintained, I have told give it a few stars as I do a lot of my hill trail runs on here. Convenient and right out my back door.

Overgrown, difficult to find, and some weird looks from the golf course.

Trail is on a military base so you cannot access this trail unless you or someone you know has a military/dod id to get you in. The trail is easy but is somewhat overgrown and you have to cross a golf course to get to it. It ends abruptly at some power lines and you can continue but you have to hack your way through tall grass and strawberry guava branches.
