Wolfson is a sweet pocket park — nice to start + end a walk with shade + drinking fountain. Trail is paved with an option for gravel, 95% flat (small hill to pass through the wash). Minimal shade. Beautiful desert views.

Not as scenic as the thumbnail suggest. The hike is along a drainage canal and the practice area of Morningside Country Club. They path had both a paved and compact trail option, which was nice. All in all, pretty underwhelming!

Walking

Trail is paved the whole distance, making it good for runners, strollers and folk that need to be careful. Lots of park benches to stop if you need to . Hike is more of a park setting , wash is on one side and an amazing golf resort on other- easy walk/hike , but a great place to walk and relax

Just a heads up, this isn’t really a nature trail. It’s really a bike trail behind a housing development. The part that begins and is lovely and be great for a picnic. If you’re looking for more nature oriented experience go somewhere else.

WalkingGreat!No shade

Paved road all the way through - great for pedestrians and bikers. Was hard to find parking at the trailhead. There was a tiny strip of parking that was full when we went so we had to park half a mile away on a residential street. Cute little park with benches at the trailhead. They have dog potty bags and trash cans throughout the hike and park. Lots of people with dogs on the trail.

Quiet multi-use trail along a viaduct/river. Saw lots of kids biking and dog walkers. A pleasant change from running along busy streets!

Walking

This is a paved walking path vs. a trail, but a good, quick jaunt — especially if you have kids and/or dogs. Walk through Michael S Wolfson Park and you’ll find the beginning of the path.
