This trail is beautiful and scenic. Mostly smooth sand and a couple of bigger rocks in some narrow spots. Great place to take out of town friends who love the outdoors. I was worried about rattle snakes because that is their habitat but we didn’t have any altercations. Went to this trail beginning of April 2020 and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Very sunny with scattered clouds all day! Started the hike around 11am in the mid 60’s (Fahrenheit) and ended just under 3 hours later. Still perfect weather. Note we were towing a three year old and stroller! I’d do it again. We didn’t get to explore the exact route we wanted but we would do this again. Next time without a stroller! :)

First to Review

Took my hubby and rescue pup on this hike on 3/10/19 at 1 p.m. Weather was perfect! There were a lot of people enjoying the trails today, hiking, biking, horseback riding. Everyone was considerate and kind. The poppies and other wild flowers are in full bloom and should continue their showy display after the rains we are expecting in the next couple of days. I took several beautiful photos, but my favorite is of the rock that's shaped like a heart. You can see it on Bootlegger 2 Trail. Hope you enjoy your hike!
