Nice loop. There is still a pond with some bird life, on the trail was 1 skink (!) and several western fence lizards. We saw a couple scattered song birds, 1 red tail hawk and a couple scrub jays. Not too many people. The bicycle riders were very friendly, polite and gave lots of warning with one exception. Only one person had their dog on a leash the other 3 were off leash which was a bummer. And I love dogs but that isn’t very cool. You are out in the sun for the most part. Trail was smooth although some trail had water erosion making footing uneven. A couple of years ago my husband and I came across a bobcat on the trail. That was pretty awesome.

Very hard trail. Especially I really wonder why is it so sandy! It is very dangerous, I fell twice because of the sandy paths!

Great trail running training loop!

Lots of areas where you are just baking in the sun but overall a good hike with my 7 yr old daughter

Is a good hike specially if you take your kids they get to see the view of the lake and is easy to hike .

I love it is a good work out for people that wanted a long hike is very intense and beautiful views to enjoy.

l love coming here for a 60-90 minute hike with a little bit of incline. It can get crowded. Nice views of the pretty rolling hills in the Toro Park area, especially in February-April. It can get very hot and there's no cover from the sun, so I recommend keeping walks here limited to the early morning or evening.

Not a bad hike, took me 3 hours with some detours. No shade, so bring sunscreen and a hat. There are some good views of rolling hills and such but if you are looking for water views head over to Toro and hike some of their more difficult trails.

Many options for the length of hike you want to do in a day. We brought our two dogs with us, beware letting them go off leash in the posted areas! We found 10-14 ticks on each of them and I found one on myself, crawling up the back of my neck/head. Would definitely recommend treating pets with flea/tick meds prior to hike and grabbing something to repel ticks for yourself.

Really pretty hike! Just a FYI that the trail says that people must have dogs on leash, yet there were quite a few that let their dogs off leash. A good, easy hike for a Saturday:)

Great trail beautiful weather helped too. Definitely some steep parts but great views and a wonderful experience- will definitely be back.

nice trail with beautiful wildflowers

Perfect 6 mile recovery run on wide firebreak trails. After the initial climb to skyline it’s all downhill from there. Very easy to run this one on a lunch break and perfect for weekends too.

Good trail! It has a good bit of more technical terrain, perfect for training.

Nice loop starting from Creekside Terrace with beautiful views at the bench at the top. Can be done in either direction.
