Very short and easy trail. Very pretty, but be careful of falling pinecones. The animal foot prints were very cute. It says no dogs, but it was a dog ok trail. We did see dogs there. Definitely will go there again.

Easy, shady trail. Not long but beautiful and educational. Great for families with small children.

This is more of a walk, with a paved path. It's a very pleasant walk and changes with the seasons. I've walked this in the rain and it was great! nice coverage through one third of the walk.

It's really nice, well kept up, densely forested, easy stroll with clean bathrooms, and nicely tagged scrubs, trees, wild flowers, ground cover, etc.. It's right on Hwy 18 with big parking lot. It's a great place to stretch. A tourist delight. Brochures galore at the trail head, free.

Nice trail for a short walk. The path is narrow, so be prepared to keep any dogs on a short leash.

This is s great easy hike for all ages of family members. It is easily accessible with a paved parking lot right off the highway.It is mostly flat, has a beginning and an end, plant identification for those interested. We hike this at least once a year, or whenever we are in the area. It is great in all seasons and weather, we have hiked it in sun and in snow. Don’t forget to have your forest pass visible on your dashboard.

Highly suggest this trail! A very beautiful and peaceful hike all seasons. We love going during October and November especially due to all the breathtaking colors and perfect weather.

For easy nature walk just off of HWY 18. Mild elevation change, perfect for those with seniors or small children. Features a grove of Sequoias that feels a bit out of place in the San Bernardinos. Great place to enjoy a picnic.

Dogs are permitted on a leash which is stated in their flyer for the trail. You can download it from their website and it also breaks down points of interest that you'll see. Easy trail with a picnic area nearby.
