Easy trail, nothing spectacular. You end up next to the 280 which is not nice, but then again you get a great view of the bay on the other side.

It’s great as a an off-road running track though.

Great trail and nice workout. Edgewood features some really nice views, a variety of types of terrain and easy alternative paths in case you want to adjust your hike for ease/more tree cover. Definitely wear sunblock and bring a bottle of water as it can be on the warm side during the summer. Also note that there is a good amount of poison oak to the sides of the trail. Nothing to worry about but be aware. There is a nice parking lot, water filling station and a cute education center at the entrance to the trail too.

It’s a beautiful trail, loved it.

it's an easy trail but it's all open ground, so on a moderately hot day, it can get sweaty and tiring if you are not used to going outdoors in hot summer.

Saw some decent wildflowers and a nice overview of the area. Very easy outing, good for kids or elderly for sure. Not challenging or scenic enough for me to want to come back any time soon, but certainly a good find close to RWC.

Very kid friendly hike

Some of the trails are a bit steep in places but totally worth it. Where else will you get OXYGEN near a city like this? And the sound of birds!

Good backyard hiking! Despite the short distance, it has a nice incline to challenge you to a second a
nd third round!

Great awesome marked trail. Lots of choices and views.

You can hear cars for some of it. Doesn’t feel like you’re truly away in nature. Good for those that live close by and just want a quick hike.

For a compact area, the trails in Edgewood Preserve feel well laid out. It's scenic, with a mixture of covered and open spaces.

The two reasons for the low rating is that 1) it's heavily trafficked and 2) you almost always can hear car noise. This is specially pronounced on the parts of the reserve bordering Edgewood Road and highway 280.

We sis this hike as a family with a 4 and 7 year old. The trails were very well marked and had lots to see. Definitely recommend and will come back.

Great hike for kids or elderly, but for more serious hikers it’s def not the coolest score out there. Lots of foot traffic and noises...there are beautiful views though! 4/10. Also - beware of moldy poop on the trails. Idk if dogs are allowed but it certainly looks so.

Very beautiful place first time here, yes in Christmas Day lol! And they have a lot of information about the the trails and area.

Nice walk up.. a little sparse vegetation at the top... On way down, took the station wagon route which was a little steep.. convenient location

Great hike any day of the week!!

Great easy hike. Easy to find with parking nearby. Probably the nicest bathroom facilities at a park than I’ve ever seen. Except for one incline at the start, I’d probably classify this as more of an Easy hike than a Moderate one. We only ran into a handful of people, but we also went on an overcast day after it had rained in the morning so weather may have kept people away. Saw several deer up close and pretty views. Good for a casual hike.

Good initial elevation gain, some good scenic views. Good for a one to two hour hike.

Nice, equal variations in elevation, tree coverage, and views.

This is a easy hike that is good for a hot day since it is mostly covered.

Great Trail to enjoy nature while walking and getting your cardio going. There's different trails to choose from but it's a great trail to begin your day before getting to work. I suggest getting there between 5-530 am to be done by 7-730am

I love it. Good way to start your day

Wildflowers are abundant in quantity and variety, particularly on the Sunset trail portion. Views at peak are great.

Easy hike after the initial uphill hike but then you are rewarded with great views.
