This was our first time hiking since before our youngest was born. Let me tell you, this trail was so much fun! Ups, downs, rocks and trees!! There are a few places that smelled like sewer since you’re practically walking next to a sewer line the whole way. However, you can only smell it every once in a while. My 7 year old had a blast checking everything out!

Busy trail on weekends, but nice terrain. Lots of rocks and tree roots. I actually tripped on a root and fell. If you are trail running make sure you are looking out for roots and rocks. There are sewer drains along the route, but the smell isn't noticeable in the winter.

I really enjoyed this trail. Don’t let the reviews about the sewer line discourage you from checking out this trail. The sewer line is only for a short section at the beginning of the trail if you start at the Trailhead Park entrance. The first bit of the trail is paved and I wasn’t sure it was going to be what I was looking for. But when the paving ends, the real trail begins. It’s mostly covered by trees which made it bearable in the heat.

I liked this trail a lot. There’s ample parking at the park itself—there’s a playground, sports field, and pavilion, although the structure that at one time may have housed restrooms no longer appears to be available as such. The trailhead is easy to locate from within the park, but pro tip: follow the asphalt trail to the left rather than the caliche road straight ahead. That just leads to a neighborhood street, clearly a shortcut for folks on that side of the neighborhood to reach the park on foot. The first .3 is asphalt, and then it gets interesting. One path drops down near the creek and one stays a little higher up—at times it’s directly behind people’s back fences. But there’s ample shade, trails are easy to follow, and even after a lot of rain this spring it’s not terribly muddy. There are a couple of creek crossings—some have little bridges and some have rocks you can use to leapfrog over. Mostly it’s single-track wide, and in places it’s kind of overgrown. But I only saw two other people out there, so it wasn’t crowded and space wasn’t a problem. It’s got varied terrain, rolling (smallish) hills, and did I mention shaded? I enjoyed it!

Okay trail run, short, the creek actually smells pretty bad once you get down there. The path behind the houses isn’t too bad and has plenty of shade for those hot days. Also the kids park is very well shaded.

nice walk, minimal elevation change. trail runs along backyards of residents in the area though. one initial rock hill you would be able to take a stroller down small park area with playground and restroom at entrance muddy after rains. low flow creeks you'll have to get wet if you want to walk all the way through

Full of green and foliage around the trail. Most part of the trails is shaded and covered with trees - some parts get very narrower. It's fun to walk through. After the paved way, it gets little adventurous and exciting. I started early morning and I didn't find anyone walking however on my way back, I saw some people. I didn't complete the full trail and I returned after the trail got more muddier. I will visit again.

Most parts of the trail were well maintained except for one part. I had to turn around due to mud on another part. Once it dries up, I would like to go back. Good trail.

You have to venture past the paved trail to find the nice parts. Once the pavement comes to an end, keep going! We went the day after a good rain, so the creek was flowing well. We even found a pretty good sized waterfall (good sized, relatively speaking) on the side of the trail opposite of the creek.

Hit this trail again, hiking this time. It was really, really muddy at the bottom by the creek, but the rest was solid. There are just enough major forks in this trail system to give you a sense of exploration and adventure, but nothing so bad that you'll get lost, because every major fork leads you back to the neighborhood. No water fountains, rest rooms, doggy-bag stations, etc. I think there's one bench near the beginning of the trail, and that's it. But don't let this deter you, it's a fun trail, and hey, it's like, 99% shaded.

Neighborhood is nice, parking is plentiful (unless, I bet, you come on a school's-out day or something like that). The park the trailhead leaves from is rather nice. As for the trail and trailrunning: The first 1.17 miles (that's what my running app measured) was all downhill. It's paved at first but not for very long. Once you get past that downhill is when it starts getting fun. The trail is rocky/rooty, plenty of ups and downs, and the foliage sometimes creates (minimal) obstacles. It's rugged enough that you get a great workout, and the trail system seems extensive enough- I ran into plenty of forks- that you could get more than 4.5 miles. I saw no creeks nor semblances of creeks, but I've only been once so maybe somewhere back there is some creek crossings. And there is a mixture of running on rocks, and running on dirt. - - - I only encountered one longish hill climb, but boy was it a doosy! Right after that first mile you get your first fork in the trail. If you go straight I don't know what you get to. But if you go right (west), there's a section that's, I dunno, 100 feet maybe, where I was running with all my might but it was so steep I felt like I was just taking baby steps. It's not sheer, but it is steep. I kept going straight but got back to the neighborhood. I knew the trail should continue, but it's a little hard to spot. Right after the steep climb, to the west is a trail head. Gets you to the rest of the trails. Back there you get into the rest of the trail system.

fun trail if you live close- a little hard to find as it's at the very back of the park . it's a quiet trail as if you were out in the middle of nowhere. I wouldn't go out of my way for it tho as it's short and not much terrain change.

Good close in trail. Although you are wandering between housing, you will only notice it a few times.

This is a great trail with lots of loops so that you can adjust the timing of your walk. Sometimes the lower part of the trail can be a bit smelly after a rain, but the upper trail is great with lots of seaps and waterfalls after a rain. There's also another trailhead near Savannah Ridge and Boulder farther to the west.

Got up this morning and walked it. It was ok. It had a couple of benches a few nice spots to take photos. I like the uneven ground , but too many loose rocks and gravel for my liking.
