Beautiful hike. Some wildflowers, rolling hills, a creek, trees, and a little cave in one area. Signs made it easy to stay on the Johnson Ranch loop. My watch said it was 3.3 miles, but I looped back around a bit to make it 4. It was easy to hike quickly and run parts to get a good workout. Online it said it’s a 1hr 45 min hike, but it took me 51 minutes with a bit of jogging mixed in. I didn’t see anyone until I was over half through the hike, but it was a weekday morning.

Lots of interesting bends and crossings. Beautiful scenery and a few shaded areas to break at. A nice creek area about midway. The trail is narrow in areas and frequently trafficked by people and dogs. They hills were rolling along so it didn’t seem like a big climb in any place. Well managed and allowable for bikes. There are bells and leashes available at the entrance. Great hike today!

Great hike! Beautiful!!

This trail is entertaining and a good challenge. There is an occasional cow that wanders onto the trail. It is very well used, but also well-maintained. In order to keep it well-maintained, it is occasionally closed for a few days after rain. Keep that in mind before you come and check it’s status online. Bells provided for mountain bikers at the entrance. It has several loops to either shorten or lengthen your trip.

one,of my favorite trails.

Gorgeous views and a nice little workout. Sometimes the cattle will be out grazing. There is a decent amount of foot and bike traffic on this trail. You can make this trip shorter or longer.

Great trail nice views!

Great hike

Fun 3.4 miles not a bad hike, easy to find and stay on the trail!

Love Johnson for trail running with my dog. Solid 4 mile loop.

Right loop has less shade and left loop has more gain. Trails have narrow sections and you will share them with mountain bikers, so be careful if you are out with your dog or kids.

First time on it. I really liked it so pretty.

I love this trail. It's somewhat easier and flat than most other trails. About 2.5 miles out and back on a narrow pathways. But the the scenery is open and beautiful. High recommend. Great for kids and dogs. My dog loves it.

Great trail. The rolling hills make for a great workout. About 3 miles. Very narrow trails, so go at a time when there aren't a lot of people. Great for dogs as well. My dog hated those bridges tho.

Nice loop trail for the family. Mostly exposed. Frequented by mountain bikers, some of which do not ride with a bell, so be cautious. Suceptable to flooding at times.

Love this open space! Easy access to the trailhead, well maintained, and adequate parking. I've seen it range from extremely busy to completely empty. You'll likely encounter a diverse group of trailers: walkers, hikers, runners, cyclists, and group outings to name a few. May occasionally stumble on snakes, bees, or even grazing cattle. All levels should be able to complete, but if you're fitness level 1 or 2 you may need to take a break at one of the shady spots.

An easy trail in a lovely area, although very dry and made more difficult by the 85 degree weather. There was hardly anyone else out there, so it was a very peaceful place to ruminate.

It was a nice, easy walk and the cool weather made it especially pleasant. The trail was beautiful since it has recently rained; the hills were green and there were flowers everywhere!
