Love this trail.

This was a nice trail, the only downside is how narrow the path is. Be on the lookout for people on their bikes and also for rattle snakes! Also if you plan on going when it’s hot, be aware it is not very shady.

Lovely weather made us seek a local trail for Sunday morning hike. This trail is narrow (which we didn't like) but went through pretty scenery and just the amount of light elevation I was seeking. Friendly people, and cyclists sharing the trail. Not my favorite hike, but nice enough to do again if we have limited time.

Just moved to the area and wanted to spend my Sunday exploring. This trail is a great running trail with some small hills. Easy trail that anyone can do.

This is a decently trafficked out and back trail. Easily market and nothing to difficult older folks, kids, or beginners couldn't handle. The views are nice, a stream running along side the trail most of the way. Lots of hummingbirds out at this time.

Very hilly so good place to go if you want to train on hills. Pathway is pretty tight so you can only really fit one person at a time but a lot of vegetation and flowers.

Great trail but needs more maintenance because of overgrown weeds. Loved seeing wild flowers and a flowing creek.

There was a park and community center that we used for parking at other end of trail. One nice cluster of wild flowers. About half of trail had some shade. Easy hike

It was nice but the trails were really muddy! But that's because we went after it rained:(
