This hike should be labeled easy and not moderate. However, it's a nice hike for the area and a good place to do trail running. There is a small parking lot available.

Rude person lives on the corner with Murphy park shack. Some deliverance type people there.

Nice walk for kids and parents with strollers. Uphill portions are not too bad.

I would most definitely go again, so much green made for some pretty great shots

it's beautiful spot.. love coming late morning ❤

Multiple trail options. Reminds me of Kenneth Hahn.

Nice beginners hike - a few inclines, but nothing crazy! Once you hike just a little ways in, all the ambient noise of nearby streets disappears. Not much to see in particular along the short Deer Trail loop, but a nice way to add some distance if that's what you're looking for. There's a convenient free, dedicated parking lot for the trail right off Colima Rd.

moderate shade and an easy wide trail

It's a short hike with extra loops if you want to add distance. Very dry and hot in the summer, nearly empty, clean and quiet. I saw rabbits, squirrels, lizards and heard coyote in the distance. I avoid Bellman and Turnbull because of the sun/heat and this trail is a decent alternative.

For a quick hike this place is great. The trail is all fire-road and does not have many challenging spots. I went during the week and it was hardly busy.

Love this trail for running and for endurance building . Best place to start running and getting used to those incline routes ☺️

This hike was nice, but not amazing. Very dry. We went very early in the morning but I can imagine it'd be pretty miserable with the sun beaming on you. It is a good option, however, for a quick easy/moderate hike if you live in the area. My dog enjoyed exploring the brush and sniffing bunnies.

It's very dry, but still interesting. Make sure you bring water and sunscreen, especially if you hike during the afternoon. There are a few scenic spots. There's a moderate incline toward the end if you take the suggested route, so make sure you still have the energy to make it back up!

Easy trail. Nice location

It's a nice spot with ample parking. I don't like that some parts of the trail are narrow and other parts not flat so it adds uneven pressure on your feet. Trail isn't as clearly marked as others. Watch for mountain bikers!

Nice spot to picnic.

Very easy trail. I'd recommend doing it backwards. We went to the right when we started and went down a hill for over a mile. Going to the left and then up that hill at the end would be a much better workout.

Beautiful trail. Come early as there is limited parking. Nice back side view of Colima. Be prepared to hit many inclines. Cheers!
