trails are not as well marked as exoected. plus green Valley trail is not named the same as on the trailheads but followed the map tool on the app and found our way. nice well maintained trail fir both my 13 year old daughter and dog. took a little under 2 hours to complete but that included time for exploring cave and taking in the views. nice hidden gem and offered views that were not expected. I plan to come back and try one of the other longer more difficult trails.

We went as a family to this trail. It was a lot of fun. the kids enjoyed the baby frogs around the pond. it is a huge park, so be careful not to get lost. if it wasn't for this app it would have been hard to find our way out!

The trail head is right after the residential neighborhood. You won't see it if your not looking for it. Luckily the trail is moderately used & there were cars parked on the outside of the trail start & it helped to look where people are heading. It starts with a slight clime up. Be prepared to go slow w/all the traffic the trail gets. You can stay on this short trail or you can go exploring as their are other trails in the same park you can go out that mingle in with this specific trail. No opportunity to let the dog off leash to explore. Too many people. Otherwise, great park and some great views at the top. This can be a loop trail.

Lots of hidden surprises as you go! Friendly people, clean park, and sheep were extra added bonus! Easy trails all around!!

Favorite spot and must see is view above the lake!!

Surprisingly lovely! Starts out where you can see the valley and the highway but you're quickly in a secluded area with lots of well maintained trails. Elevation gain is minimal - 500 ft ish.

Great hike to get you back in the groove.

We had a pleasant 7-mile (3.5 hour) hike in Green Valley Trail today. We started at the intersection of Vintage Valley Drive and Dynasty Drive in Fairfield (Green Valley). We hiked along the pedestrian walkway past Green Valley Creek up to the park's southern entrance. We turned left onto the Black Oak Trail, left on Middle Mystic Trail, left on Twisted Tree Loop Trail, continued Junction trail to Root Trail, and left on Cliff View Trail. We continued onto Outer Loop Trail, right on Rock Garden Trail, we looped around the lake and took the Bay Area Ridge Trail to the Green Valley Trail for the return back.

You have to pay per person and extra for your dog and can't even just check out the area. If it was $3 for parking that would be fine but pay per person and have to keep your pass on you in case someone stops you and asks for it.

Loved the view, the shaded trees, and the trail itself was pretty challenging.
