Great trail, beautiful flowers and lots of wildlife. Not too crowded. Had to ask some other hikers which was the way as there are many trails that are all good too take around the basic loop.

It was good for an afternoon hike, not too hot for just over a mile. We enjoyed it.

Nice trail, easy for kids to spot wildlife. Parking lot entrance is right at the sign, passed right by it on the first on my first go.

Easy walk. Great for little kids as it’s not far, no elevation, but has some bridges and ponds/creeks to explore.

Perfect trail to get some fresh air and let your kids run out some energy. Bring a picnic lunch and head to the airpark across the street after your outing to watch planes take off & land. A fun couple’a hours.

This is a great walk! It's nice and easy on the humans but super fun for me! Lots of good smells, birds, and native plant species waiting to get sniffed!

Very nice walk, hike in the Fallbrook area. Be sure to look at the map on Alltrails as there is no local map on site. There are many forks and side trails with no marked direction. It was a fun hike for all ages.

great nature hike. mostly flat and could even be done by people with accessibility considerations. lush native vegetation such as enormous white sage shrubs and yerba mansa (power plant for ecosystem and medicine). The drive down Mission Rd in Fallbrook to get there is gorgeous.

Great trail for families with small children and dogs. Also used by cross country runners. Seasonal pond. Short but sweet and a great place to get away from it all Shade on west side, so even a good place for the hot summer days.

Some shade. Very short. Not much to see but there is a lot of butterflies, lizards and squirrels.

Great family trail, all paths are clear & marked. The loop is a little over a mile, but if you go off on the little trails you can make it as long as you want. We ended up w/ 2 miles. Great place for kids to explore & go on adventure.

I loved all the wildlife and nature. But you can hear the highway the entire time. It is loud. And on a Saturday we crossed paths with several people with pets.

Nothing to special. More just a nice trail walk than a real hike, but that’s okay. The trail was well groomed and easy to navigate.
