I enjoyed this trail. Some hills with switch backs that made for a great lunch run.

Nice trail. About 70% shaded. Wish you didn’t hear the road so much. Also the distance is 4.4 round trip not 4 miles.

Nice and easy stroll through some lovely woods along the 49. Road noise is a thing but still a beautiful walk!

HikingGreat!

The pond itself is pretty, but if you’re looking for a “day in the woods” type of hike, this isn’t for you. About 2 miles of the trail are very close to Highway 49 which ruins the impressive scenery. If you’re looking for a short, easy hike that features a pond and don’t mind some traffic this is a perfect trail for you.

super easy for me, mostly flat hike. what i didn't like is i can hear and see the highway on some parts of the trail and also was a long one hour drive for me. but if u r living close, it's worth it. i went early morning, so saw very few people.

Nice easy trail and some beautiful spots especially near the pond. It’s not so nice to hear the busy road close by most of the time so maybe bring some earbuds and listen to some music. Super easy and flat to the pond for a short hike. A few more small hills on the rest of it. Still what I’d call easy for hikers and runners. Go early if you want to avoid people.

HikingGreat!

I took this hike again on 1/8/21. Still one of my favorite trails. Took a few more people with me this time. Everyone really enjoyed it. Good for beginners but not TOO easy. Feels good to hike this! Mud was not bad at all (we’ve had a dry year though). I still think the ending is weird. You end up nowhere. I need closure! Lol NO bathrooms here. Find a place beforehand! My sister learned the hard way. Happy hiking!

Beautiful! Even in the rain! Can get slippery out there, so wear good trail shoes. Two thumbs up!

HikingGreat!

This trail was made for Nevada City locals. It is relatively flat and has a few nice views of the forest, plus it can be accomplished in less than 2hrs.

HikingGreat!

Pretty little hike with a beautiful lake! Easy trail. The only downside for me was that it closely follows the highway, so we didn't really feel like we were immersed in nature. Lots of beautiful, mossy trees.

Used to be almost five miles round trip, but the last mile has been taken over by new homes. Very disappointing. Not worth the drive for me.
