Lots of shade, wide trails and different options to switch it up.

Nice little hike. Be prepared for a decent size hill. I was also met by a large animal in the bushes down stream. I didn’t get close enough or stick around to see what it was, but was a little bigger than a raccoon. Decent sized wild animal excrement near by, so just a heads up!

love this spot, can go many different ways, wish they put up a little more stations for poop bags and more trash cans scattered on the trail. Good amount of poison oak so be wary.

The trail is a mix between shaded areas and no shade. Did part of the trail carrying my sun. Unfortunately it was a very hot day so we had to finish early. Great for a casual walk.

Nice easy Sunday dog walking trail.

good shady walk that is accessible. Kid and stroller friendly. Watch out for poison oak.

Very nice park for hiking. The whole place seems to sit in it's own valley of hills so expect mud after rain. We went on a cloudy and rainy day but there are a lot of trees for shade when sunny. There are some nice paths made of sand and the Aqua Hediona trail is real nice flat walk. Good for an afternoon stroll, dog walk or brisk walk. I saw a guy training by running up the hill too. looked like a good work out. No matter your skill or the weather I think this a great simple park to get some steps in. There is a duck pond where the water drain off. The ducks are friendly because people feed them. Although its cute and tempting to feed them...They have enough food and should not be fed by humans for they will be used to relying on people for their sustenance and people are unreliable. They are wild, not pets and not in a zoo. The ducks and geese are not thankful anyway plus they s**t everywhere so theres goes sanitation of a nice park

Love this trail. I run with my dogs from south buena vista park to north buena vista park. This trail offers us many options as far as length and difficulty goes. We are able to chose to go up the mother of all hills (in this trail) or run a nice even keel flat path. It’s also really beautiful especially if you go the long path. Nice little hidden gem in vista.
