The trail is easy and can be finished in half an hour. It's well suited for a after-work/school stroll as well. The view is good and the cactus plants form good scenery.

The hike started out great we even enjoyed the hike up the hill. However when you get to the top the downhill on the backside is closed and washed out. The trail around the lake is nice and easy. The backside does have a sign saying the shortcut is closed. Would have been nice on the front side before going up the hill
