We are a family of 6 with our youngest being 3. It was easy to see the trail has not been maintained recently. To much poison oak for a kid friendly trail. Also water level is pretty much nothing. Found a few remnants of what was a lake which is now more like a watering hole for mosquitos. 1 out of 5 stars.

Beautiful easy short walk, pretty flat. Foot bridges, a little grove of redwoods that caught us by surprise. All very beautiful, great hike before dusk. My kids loved it. will def come back and bring visitors.

Easy nice hike after work. Trail is well taken care of, pretty shady walk (as in trees). Pond was nice and lots of birdies chirping

This is a really beautiful trail to take kids of any age on. If you don't have anything better to do on weekend morning then check this trail out.

This is a neat little quiet quick loop. The pond wasn't really there as we haven't had any rain, but it was pretty and easy. I'll go back now that it's rained to check it out.
