dogs on leash
Has potential to be a good trail but the mosquitos were RELENTLESS and the cockleburs were too numerous for our dog to ignore. Had to carry her for a while to get through a certain section that was unbelievably bad. I pulled 84 out of my shoes! I might try this trail one more time in the dead of winter when we've had a freeze and I know both bugs and burs are dead.

Wanted to let those who are looking for this trail know that it is located within Friedrich Park. Really nice area for hiking and/or trail running. Several different trails with various lengths, terrain and difficulty.

Love to run this one with the Main loop. A little over 4 miles combined.

One of my favorite trails. Flat area with some rocky hills to climb. I can do an "easy" 4 miles if I add Juniper Barrens in the mix. Lots of shade.
It was a great hike for novice hikers. Had a variety of trails from easy to moderate. Various terrain; meadows, small rocks, dirt, big rocks. It was a perfect day weather wise 60-80 degrees. We hiked 10 miles through a combination of trails that took us to the protected habitat area. About 600 ft of elevation variance I think.
Fun ride but not sure I'd go back considering my other options. No marked off-road trails. My if the trail was over grown. No major elevation changes and lots of rocks. I don't see how you can ride this on a hard tail and have a good time.

Good place to get out of the city, and theres usually not *too* many people to run into!
