Nice trail thru housing development. Fun to look into everyone’s backyards.

BEST PARKING: The end of Pinnacle Lane. This was a great hike (although I’d call is moderate with all its ups and downs). Trail is well marked. Beautiful homes passed along the way and friendly occupants. We had a 67, 38, 9, and 5 year old in our group and everyone enjoyed it! Nice and shady along the way.

Came here to test out our new carrier pack for our baby. Was easy, pleasant and well marked.

Well maintained trail. For parking, best start at the end of Pinnacle Ln. the loop is only 2.5 miles. However, there are alternate routes to increase the distance and difficulties. Trail goes around back of the local residence, so be respectful. It's a nice nature walk for trail beginners.

I was unable to find parking to hike this trail. If anyone has any suggestions on parking, I would appreciate it. The direction to the beginning of the trail was somebody's home.

Did a half loop, pretty much the eastern half-see my recording, 1.5 miles total. 6&7 year olds enjoyed the shaded forest parts but didn’t like the silty dust on the northern part of the loop from tractors clearing dead trees and using the trail for access. Nice to try something close to Shaver but with no big vista views and silty dust, there are better options.

First to Review

Most of the trail is well marked but there are areas where it gets washed out & confusing. There's other trails in the area which come close to this one & more than once I found I had gotten off of trail &/or onto a different one. This trail is also surrounded by houses so parts of it feel like you're tresspassing in peoples yards.
