10/10 would recommend for trail running. It’s super flat and there’s no traffic on week days. Even the climb at the end is relatively easy. For just a hike, however, it’s super boring, not much to look at and nothing but a view of a brown canyon at the top.

This hike is incredibly long. The first 5 miles are completely flat and take you through some farm land before you begin to climb a summit. Once reaching the top, you begin to go down hill again. I haven’t completed the entire trail, maybe 11-12 miles, but the views are beautiful and it’s best in spring as it’s very exposed during the summer months.

Great hike. Rated appropriately in this app. Good hike even for senior hikers. 360 Panoramic view at the top. Not to crowded in Feb. and breeze was nice in places during the hike.

Too many people even on a Thursday morning.

Nice hike. Easy trails. Out and back so no directional challenges. Too many bikes. And often crowded. The flat dirt trail is unshaded and there’s one ports potty about halfway in. Trail is next to agricultural fields, fenced with chain link on one side.

Bring plenty of water and snacks if you’re planning to make it a day.

Loved it! It was a great afternoon. The dog loved it, too. The trail is narrow in some areas so single file hiking. And if there’s a bike it’s tight.

For those who consider this “easy”.... perhaps Mt Fuji would be more appropriate for you.

Pretty but more urban than we like, not escaping enough for our tastes and we prefer hiking. This is completely flat.

Decent trail. Too crowed on a Saturday morning. The end is not marked. Saw a big Coyote...

Beautiful Views at the top!

Looks like a work in progress here. The Alltrails map is a little wrong. Once you cross Jimmy Durante, the trail sticks close to the road. If you follow the app trail, it will take you approximately 800 feet to a dead end. Still kind of a good place to stop and watch the wildlife. Great trail for birding, we saw an Osprey and some Kestrels.

Nice easy lots of wildlife around and great views.

Easy to moderate I would say. Not much to see until you get to the peak.

Nice stroll. Nice scenery. Kid friendly.

Perfect In January!

Took my 2 young kids and dogs on this flat trail around 2pm. Lots of freeway noise and auto odor the first 1/2 mile. But we did see some great wildlife: mullet jumping fish were cool, blue heron, lots of other birds and a caterpillar. We walked all the way out to the boardwalk near the fair grounds. Didn’t make it all the way to the beach because we stopped off at View Point brewery for drinks and a snack. Overall trail was good except for freeway noise and smell. Would do again off freeway hours and bring kids bikes.

My 6 yr. old and I did this trail not to long ago and had a great time. Great views from the peak.

Too many snakes on trail. Yikes!!!

Great views from top, a few moderate inclines. Dog friendly on leash.

I would say this trail is easy to moderate. pretty flat for a majority of the hike.

Great views over the lake.

Great trail with historic landmarks. This area was the site of a Mexican-American battle. It is level and easy.

Nice walk, very little shade , pretty flat walk , lots of people on bikes so kinda busy went on a Saturday...

Great little hike to the top. I’m in love with the view from the summit.

Super easy walk, very flat trail. Very quiet stroll on a Sunday morning, no one I️n sight, very few runners.
Did an out and back. Too bad trail doesn’t go around river. Saw some horses

Open fields, beautiful meadows, & two switch backs.

Lake Hodges is beautiful the water levels are low. The trail is well maintained.There are plenty of trees and shade. My concern is this Trail is very close to the road and you can always hear the cars. We did see a few bikers and a few other groups of hikers on a Friday morning.

Beautiful easy flat trail, great to kid our 5yr old riding his bike on a trail.

Make sure there is not a bike race on the day you want to go walk the trail.
