This is a generally flat hike that you can make as long or as short as you like. There are runners, walkers, mountain bikers, horse riders and people of all sorts on this shady and sunny walk. The trails are well maintained and marked. You can stay on the main drag or jog off on the single lane trails that always eventually meet up with the two main trails.

Well maintained and beautiful trails. Park at the far end of the community center for free. Lots of off-shoots trails. And watch out for the wildlife. I've see everything from rabbits and deer, to foxes and of course, rattlesnakes.
