Super boring trail. Not a lot to see! You can’t really drown out the cars that are close by either. Won’t be back

Beautiful place!

Super quick little trail that defends pretty steeply in the middle. Not really stroller friendly, but totally worth it for the kids.

Relaxing sounds of cars and trucks and traffic. Amazing view of houses and streets. If you like beautiful secluded forests this isnt for you

One of my favorite places to walk my dogs. Plenty of trails-I'm always trying a new one. It's semi-rugged so you don't get the stroller and bike traffic that you find on many other trails (my dogs are afraid of them).

I would upgrade to 5 stars if there were more trail markers telling you where you are at and where you are going.

The main photo for this hike is not Jenkins Estate. There is no water at this location.

An OK but short hike, as several of the trail segments on the map have been closed for quite a while (looks like several years) due to water damage. Total available trail length is about 2.5 mi. There is no parking at the starting point indicated on the map. The best place to park is the Jenkins Estate parking area; the entrance does not seem to appear on ANY maps, and is at the first 90-degree turn on Grabhorn Rd (going south from Farmington). Take some time to visit the estate area itself, there is a small koi pond (I didn't see any, I guess they were being koi), and wildflowers in the spring/summer.

Love this place, nice place to relax with the dog. Great community garden

Very nice trails. A nice close place to feel like you are out of the city. Easy to handle a stroller on. There is gravel paths in the garden area, but not big or deep enough to make strollers impossible. My baby loves the bouncyness it gives!

This is only a few minutes from my house and it was pretty great! I hardly saw anyone out there, it was peaceful. I took my dogs and they had a great time as well. will definitely be going back!

Perfect city hike around the block from home to make me feel like I was out of town. No view, just rolling hills of trails for some good exercise! It's a beautiful park! There is a garden area that blooms nice seasonally. People have weddings and other events at the Jenkins Estate. Dogs are welcome... scoop the poop.

Easy, good hike with dog friends.

A beautiful serenity in the city outskirts... maintained just enough but not too much.

There are no defined trail markers to let you know you are on the right trail. There are no views and the trail is loud due to construction. No wildflowers, dead and dusty foliage is all you will find. NOT kid friendly as I couldn't bring a stroller due to the loose gravel. The trail is also straight downhill. Not feasible for my 2 toddlers. Very disappointing.

This is a perfect trail for a lunch nature walk, or a short day 1-hour hike. Total trail takes one hour generally, when taken at a reasonable pace.

Take the trailhead toward Camp Rivendale (which is part of this trail but closed to the public when a camp is in session) for more varying terrain, or the opposite for more open straight path trails.

Clean trail. Very dog friendly, and poop bags available. Be sure to bring plenty of water for yourself and your four legged friends.

This trail has multiple entrances by foot, one main entrance with a big parking lot. I will definitely come back!
