We loved it! Fairly easy, and large enough to choose the areas where you want to hike around. Some areas were more difficult than others. We really enjoyed the architecture, and hiking around the golf course. Just go check it out, you won't regret it!

The lower trail starting from parking at Pioneer is nice. Occasionally difficult to follow the trail, but overall a fun, short trail. Trail maps could be better but the trails are short enough it's not a big deal.
Wow what a walk. I started out too strong and by the end it was all I could do to make it to the parking lot. If I come here again I'll pace myself a bit more. S health fitness tracker on my phone said I walked 3.68 miles but All Trails said 4 miles. That's a huge difference in distance, not sure which is right. Or maybe it's somewhere in the middle.
Trail was ok. Started at pioneer and really didn't like the gravel and rock, was glad it wasn't the entire trail. I wish the trail was marked a little better that's why I gave it 3 stars. Was my first time and was trail running and with all the other small trails coming in and out it made it hard to know we were on the right trail. Loved the scenery.
