Nice, short walk - mix of shade and sun. Great for dogs. Parking at the vista spot. Lizards, dragonflies, quails and rabbits all spotted on our walk!

Really nice walk in the woods. Good for an easy hike. I went on a sunny but cool day in March after a week of non stop rain. It was really nice to hear the flowing water but the no real views.

I will try again in a couple months, once the trails have time to drain and dry...but by far the least kept trail with the worst standing mud/water yet.

3 mi loop perfect winter kid dog hike. Sparsely populated (few courteous mountain bikers) with vistas and small waterfall.

Super calm, beautiful views. My dog and I loved it. Perfect for a short hike.

The old Spanish trail becomes non-dog friendly about half way down the right side of the loop, had to turn back. Lots of mountain bikes going pretty fast on alpine road which made hiking with a dog on the narrow trails less than ideal. A couple of nice vistas.

Scenic views and several different trails you can hop on. Great for trail running and getting a good hill workout.

This is a nice trail with good views to the east and a good hike down to the end of Alpine Rd. Plus, dogs are allowed on leash. Winter/spring is a good time to hike Coal Creek but can be a bit muddy.
