The trail itself is well maintained. It does a nice loop with decent amount of wildlife to interact with. The main gem of this place is taking your dog and allowing them to run off-leash when you get to the top. This is a huge advantage over your normal dog park.

Things to note:

There are no trashcans so you have to carry dog waste out.

Bring water for your dog to make sure they have it. It can get hot.

Nice easy trail, good for entire family, but short and limited view along the way but still a good experience if you are starting off or with kids/dogs.

This is my go to place if I need to get a quick hike in but I am short on time. As a previous reviewer stated, this is not the Pulgas Water Temple but is the Pulgas Open Space Preserve. I would place this a little harder than easy. While I think beginner hikers will do just fine they should keep in mind that it is not flat. Dogs are allowed and there is a bathroom along with trail maps at the trail head. Bring plenty of water because it gets really hot even though there is a lot of shade.

This is a good place to walk. The only problem is, it is not the Pulgas Water Temple. It is the Pulgas Ridge Trail. Everything else is correct.

The pool picture is on the other of the freeway, not in this trail. Google it if you want to go to the pool area. Don't expect it in the trail.

Decent hiking, really a better place for dogs. has a nice area for off leash but is primarily on leash hiking. One spot with decent views but mostly pretty easy hiking
