Love Johnson for trail running with my dog. Solid 4 mile loop.

Right loop has less shade and left loop has more gain. Trails have narrow sections and you will share them with mountain bikers, so be careful if you are out with your dog or kids.

I love this trail. It's somewhat easier and flat than most other trails. About 2.5 miles out and back on a narrow pathways. But the the scenery is open and beautiful. High recommend. Great for kids and dogs. My dog loves it.

Great trail. The rolling hills make for a great workout. About 3 miles. Very narrow trails, so go at a time when there aren't a lot of people. Great for dogs as well. My dog hated those bridges tho.

Nice loop trail for the family. Mostly exposed. Frequented by mountain bikers, some of which do not ride with a bell, so be cautious. Suceptable to flooding at times.

Love this open space! Easy access to the trailhead, well maintained, and adequate parking. I've seen it range from extremely busy to completely empty. You'll likely encounter a diverse group of trailers: walkers, hikers, runners, cyclists, and group outings to name a few. May occasionally stumble on snakes, bees, or even grazing cattle. All levels should be able to complete, but if you're fitness level 1 or 2 you may need to take a break at one of the shady spots.

An easy trail in a lovely area, although very dry and made more difficult by the 85 degree weather. There was hardly anyone else out there, so it was a very peaceful place to ruminate.
