Quiet, very nice. Some places to have picnics if you want.

We did way more than the 1.4 mile loop. Took the yellow blue trail out to the end. Was on a service road for a bit. Then took the blue trail around and back. There were steeps, rocky terrain , cliffs and boulders. But mostly a nice hike for intermediate hikers. Although I would recommend boots and not sneakers. But definitely doable.
We did 4.24 miles after working a 9 hour day. I was a bit tired to say the least after all was said and done.

This was a simple easy hike. Went on a fairly chilly day and enjoyed it. Easy walk.

Great moderate hike. We kept on going for about 2 hours, not realizing how far in you can get. The views are quickly spectacular and on hot days, you can swim in the park across the way or just hike the shorter trails there!

This is a nice easy trail we hike often. This is definitely easy as long as the weather is nice and cool. It is well shaded, but on very hot, poor air quality days, it can be a tougher hike for asthmatics like me.

Great trail run or spot to walk the dogs!
