This is 1/2 mile out and back boring little trail but perfect for kids 6 and younger. You can do it with a bob stroller when the trails dry so that’s a huge plus. Playground is the trail head, ends at private property Mankins Ranch and back out to playground.

Easy half mile out and back. Great for strollers and kids with bikes. Pretty flowers and berry bushes when in season. Plus a fun way playground at the end for kids.

Nice little trail, wide and well-maintained, with good footing throughout. Pretty scenery, with lots of wildflowers and birds. Good warm-up hike for beginners, or just a nice break close to town. Not sure why anyone would give this a low rating. Only negative is traffic noise at the entrance, since it’s near the freeway.

Shorter than expected. Perfect for a dog walk, not great for exercise. One small hill, flat enough for a jogger stroller, but easy enough to have baby in a carrier.

Trail is now more like a road, a semi truck was driving down it and we had to wait off the road as it passed. Ends early at a locked chain link fence.

A nice walkway, perfect for a quick walk in a natural setting. A wide easy level path. Great for strollers and children.
