Maps are confusing... Just stay to the right a lot! You can go on and on and on. We did 9 miles.

Really enjoyed this trail, beautiful views.
Beware of the mountain bikers though!

Started at the Nature Center trail head and went up the 2nd fork to the left and up to "The View" which is a great rest area. There is another tiny trail that will take you to the view (the first left with a big water tank) but it's very small and for experienced people. From there I went up the smaller trail to the old Boy Scout Camp. There are shortcuts on this trail which take you steeply over a ridge and steeply down to meet the Stough Canyon fire road. I used he steep down, but it's not advised unless you are experienced. From there I casually walked down the fire road to the Nature Center.

Overall it was a nice loop with some interesting urban exploring and beautiful views on a good day. There's barely any shade though, so not for the hottest of days.

My favorite. So many different ways to go and explore. Great uphill hike up to an amazing 360• view with a bench to relax in on top.

I hiked the 7 miles in 3 hours, in the rain (the last 3 miles). I enjoyed it! Feb. 10, 2017

Be careful on the directions the app gives you. It took me to a road that doesn't exist or isn't open. Go to DeBell golf course then continue past it to reach the nature center. The first half mile is the steepest then levels off for the most part for the rest of the way. I wouldn't rate it moderate but maybe between easy/ moderate. Nice views.

Easy to moderate hike with great views and quiet trails. You'll run into other hikers, sure, but without the crowds that occupy the busier sites. Definitely bring water and wear sunscreen

This is a nice moderate hike, with a fair amount of shade compared to other trails in the area. I hiked at 8am on a Saturday and there was light to moderate foot traffic toward the bottom, and almost zero traffic towards the top. There were several mountain bikers, and a few trail runners.

Ran this trail from the parking area up to about 1/3 of a mile from the radio tower. I estimate it was about a 3 3/4 round trip. Very scenic and pretty. Also very hot with little to no shade. There is water only at the trail head. Arrive hydrated. We saw a coyote along the trail so I advise dog owners to keep their dogs on a leash. If you are a distance runner this is some nice hill training. Or if you're simply a hiker, great exercise and views
