Mostly easy trail, but short parts are steep enough to be moderate rated.

Quick hike. Less crowded. Next time will hike both sides in the same hike.

Quick easy hike on a rainy day. Nice purple and yellow wildflowers!

This trail provides views of the city. You will hear traffic. Due to elevation and uneven footing I would rate this trail as moderate.

This is definitely a city hike-easy to moderate in places. Pretty scenery, nice view of the city and views of snow capped mountains way off in the distance. Also some areas where you’re practically in someone’s backyard, which I don’t like. Not my most favorite hike, but not my least. It was a great hike for our day dogs! I would do again if the dogs asked to go back... some areas with in line and some loose rocks. There is one spot just after the tunnel that had some slippery rocks. There is a bathroom and a large parking lot. We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a spot.

Multi-use trail (mountain bikes, runners, hikers, and walkers). Lots of shale. Beautiful views.
