Very good area with multiple trails and routes you can take to switch up the scenery. Would definitely go again and all the people out there were very friendly!

Great trail- plenty of open space, wide trails, no wash out. Not very much pavement though so my son couldn’t scooter much.

Our first time here. Lots of fun easy trails with variety of hills or flats. Clean, safe, lots of people walking, running and biking but not over-crowded by any means

Great, flat, easy and safe trail. Great for dogs! Not very long and didn’t see water features. May not have gone the right direction

This is a nice trail to jog on. I felt safe and there were quite a few others walking in the evening as well.

Nice well kept walking trail right in the middle of town. Low traffic today, quiet, peaceful and seasonal spring flowers, large beautiful oak trees with shade in spots.

#tenlegstosunset First time exploring with Murphy and Billy a little of these mostly flat but beautiful trails not far from Simpson U and Shasta College. Well maintained light gravel throughout, nice, fun off trails and a little creek water for the boys. We will be back!

Absolutely beautiful! There are meadows and wildflowers as far as you can see. Extremely well maintained trail, and as a Mom; I felt extremely at ease letting my kiddo run as far ahead as I could see..... Doggo poopoo bags and two trash receptacles available also. Bring water, and your camera. Can't wait to go back!

Beautiful area in the spring... Nice and green. Followed the track to the back of the trail and the sky fell. Scrambled back on a different route route to get out of a heavy rain. Great trail for dogs and bicyclists. The trail is wide, clay based with gravel and wide enough to support a sports wheelchair easily. There are side single track trails going everywhere in all directions...

Great for a family bike ride. It connects with the Lema bike and dog walk trails which lead to Minder Park, a sweet neighborhood playground and picnic area.

Hey, this is accurately an easy trail, and a nice view of an area most people don't see. This could be my new favorite little in-town loop.

Small parking lot, gate leads to trail. Nice gravel trail loop, flat. Partially shaded. Open fields, oak trees, some wildflowers. Part of the McConnell Foundation trails. The scenery isn't as varied as Lema Ranch trails, but still a nice easy loop.
