You can't complete the loop unless you have poles because it's ridiculously steep. Just FYI

Beautiful trail. Challenging but yet doable for most people will definitely be coming back plenty of times

Up, up, up hill

This trail is definitely not for beginner hikers. The incline is pretty intense and there is almost no shade. That being said, I personally enjoyed it although it was a little challenging! If you’re looking for a good workout with many beautiful views, this is the trail for you! It provides almost a 360° view of our beautiful cities and when you reach three trees, there is a nice bench to sit (in what’s almost the only shade on the whole trail!) and enjoy the amazing views.

This was my first time at this park. I hiked the equestrian trail loop, going counterclockwise from the parking lot. It was beautiful and peaceful, and perfect for someone like me who is trying to get active again after being out of shape for a few years—slightly challenging without being too difficult. My route was just under a mile from start to finish. There were other trails that branched off from the one I followed, and I’m excited to come back and explore more of them!

Tough but good

Moderately strenuous hike with some steep inclines peppered along the way to give you a good sweat. Would absolutely recommend, but remember:

Wear appropriate footwear
Bring at least 72 ounces of water
Practice “Leave No Trace” etiquette
Ascent has right of way
No one wants to hear your music, keep the speakers in the car and be courteous of others who are trying to enjoy themselves

Moderate at times a little steep.

Fun little trail in town.

Not too bad of a trail. Lots of people hiking along. Few mountain bikers.

It can get really steep at sections. Get ready to burn close to 1,000 calories in less than 90 minutes! It was nice today after the light rain we got. First mile is a nice easy warmup through the park.

Amazing view of the valley, highly recommend going early in the morning as it gets very hot in the afternoons and there's little shade.

It was a gorgeous hike with stunning vistas! We took our dog and he had a blast. Does have some steep inclines so take your time and don't start this hike after 1pm (especially in winter time) so you can take plenty of breaks and enjoy before it gets dark.

Quite strenuous, but a great trail with various landscapes.

Great hike... nice trail and good butt burn!

Couple of quick elevation gain leading to steep uphill make this trail a bit strenuous. Still doable with a rewarding view!!

This is what I would call an extreme hike not moderate. I would say my group is fit but this is an intense hike.

Our regular trek. Partly covered. Great paths, many small creeks at different times of the year.
