Great views. Recommend taking the side trail up to the pond to add a little climb to the relatively flat trail.

Beautiful Trail, really is about 8 miles of hiking. Just one big long loop.

An alright Trail. Cool place to watch the sunset.

This Trail gave me the motivation to quit smoking. Lungs almost popped but I made it to the top. Sad it's closed now... did this Trail about 2-3 times a week

It was nice to go there during January because it's not too hot. It was a very easy hike. Beautiful green grass and blue skies.

Great hike loved the views. The water is flowing so crossing over the streams can be a little challenging. But if you don't mind getting your feet wet you'll be ok!

Infinite amount of trails. Follow it how you want to and it is not difficult getting around. A few small stones and tumble weeds, but mostly clean trails. Just be cautious when dirt bikes and atv's are present.

Fun trail, be careful in winter road becomes very icy but great drive and nice place to go star gazing

The convenient, easy to get to location makes this a perfect place to walk, bike or run without leaving the city. And when there's water in the river it provides some nice scenery as well

If you stay on the main paved road it's more of a walk down the middle of a valley. But it is absolutely beautiful after a rain.
