Birds chirping, great smelling bushes and a hike that starts off easy and then becomes welcomingly more challenging as the trail starts to incline more and more. Also a nice view of a small portion of the cityscape behind you.

I believe the trail has also been extended further up.

I did this trail today with my sister. It's an easy hike, about 1 mile in then you come straight back out. The trail is in pretty good condition, but there are some cracks so you need to watch your step. Very minor incline until about the last 1/3 of a mile where you start to get a little steep until you get to he lookout. Good if you want an easy hike. Bring lots of water and wear sunscreen! There are some nice shaded areas you can take breaks, but you are in the sun the majority of the time.

Great trail. Though I did spot a small coyote one time. Just be careful of that.

Bees BEES BEEEEES AND constant INCLINE!!! The trail is smooth sailing 0.5 miles in. Their are just allot of bees. AND HELLO INCLINE. The incline is about a 9 at times 11 and it does not stop. I was expecting a rest stop but geesh, it was inclined too lol. This is definitely a moderate hike. Whoever said it was easy LIED. We did the trail with a stroller so it is possible because it is pretty smooth for the most part. Make sure you bring bug repellent and some type of stick for defense I swore I heard a coyote. Anywho is was worth it, because my legs are feeling good and sore today. #GREATWORKOUT

Enjoyed it! Saw a rattler so keep ur eyes open.

Nice little hike out and back with parking and a nature station at the bottom. Nature station contains snakes and insects kids would enjoy.

Fantastic family friendly hike! This trail starts right behind the Nature Center and is very easy and peaceful. The first half is fairly flat but there is a slight incline towards the end of the trail. Easy incline for an adult but could seem a little steep if taking your toddler. You will be sharing the trail with horses and there are road apples everywhere so you may want to watch out on your footing. There are multiple chairs to take a break and just listen to the birds. I did hear a lot of buzzing while hiking through several sections so I'm assuming there are bee hives nearby. Lots of birds and lots of bunnies as well.

Never been inside the Nature Center and would love to visit next time when they're open. There was a restroom by the Nature Center but was not open so it may only be accessible when the center is open. A water fountain is also available towards the beginning of the trail.

Dogs are allowed on leash. Parking is available by the Nature Center and there is also another gravel lot right next to it.
