Killer hill at first to the right. Lots of wildlife. Not much shade.

Nice golden hour sunset hike with my son. Saw many beetles, lizards, rabbits, crows, and two tarantulas.

Always a fun and easy hike with the kids. Still overgrown but CHSP is making progress on other trails.

If you are familiar with Little Canyon you’ll find it, otherwise you’ll pass it by. I’ve been hiking this loop for a few years now and I’ve never seen it this overgrown. But it was fun to hike since it felt like you were hiking in the back country. It rained on us this morning and that only added to the ambiance. Great little hike that takes about 50 minutes if you go down Little Canyon. Coming up is more of a workout but also good.

There was so much overgrowth! I wasn’t able to make it to the peak today, so I turned around about a quarter of the way in and hiked a different route.

Great trail. A small portion is very overgrown but manageable.

The mustard plants were everywhere and they almost engulfed you along the trail! No worries, it’s a great little hike!

A great hike! Good views and a ton of mustard flowers. Not a very popular hike and there were lots of lizards and birds.

Just a quick loop after work. Nice to add the mileage.

This trail is confusing. We actually went the wrong direction TWICE and turned this short hike into a 7+ mile hike. Also, it is all hills! So, while the scenery was beautiful, it was strenuous for me and my 5 kids. I don't think we'll be repeating this one.

Pretty good hike that can take 1-2 hours to finish. Definitely want to go in spring when the hills are green. Everything is dead during the summer.

Rattlesnake in the grass on easy street. Narrow trail gets you close to their territory. Nice views. Pretty intense climb for “easy trail”. Enjoyed it.

This is a great little loop trail that is part of a series of connected trails in the park. I used the Easy Street trailhead (which was pretty busy). Despite the number of cars at the trailhead, I saw few people on my hike. This section of the park seems most popular with mountain bikers, but it is also good for trail running since the “trail” is a well-maintained dirt road.

Amazing hike. Even without the lush green hills.
