Nice place for trail running, as the trail is wide and relatively flat. Wish there was more shade. Close to the freeway, which is convenient, but creates some noise. If you wear headphones, you won't even notice. Dog friendly:)

Nice easy hike! The trail was dog friendly but there were a lot of red ants so I would not suggest bringing your dog.

Very nice, wide, well maintained trail...however, there is very little incline and almost no shade past the first mile.
There are tons of mountain bikers on this particular trail going very fast.
Wildflowers are in full-bloom and the water level is much higher than normal. I took so many pictures and posted a few on here.

Nice walk. Pretty view. Too many bikers for a relaxing walk. Lots of freeway noise too if you are someone looking for a quiet, peaceful environment.
