The trail has a lot of shade, the 3rd to 5th mile of the trail has inclines which made a good workout if you go fro right side of the loop, the top share some part of Claremont wilderness loop. The view is good, it will be better if go there on a cloudy day or after rain. The bikers make the trail dusty. Expect lots of dirt. Overall, it is a nice trail, not challenging.

Great for running or walking. Went with group and it accommodates all levels is skill set. Lots of shade. Definitely come sprayed with insect repellent. Restrooms near to the trail entrance at park. 11:30 AM hike was ideal as there were minimal bikers. Love this trail

Great trail! Started at around 10am. Nice and shady first section (also lots of water if you were thinking of not bringing a lot and just filtering every so often). I wouldn't say it's crowded, but we did pass hikers/bikers every 10 minutes. It also walks along the side of a residential area, so it's not deep in the woods (first part), if that's something you consider. At the 3.4 mile mark, you can then either take the steep right path (which we did), or the gradual left path. I think it was good to take the steep path up because going down steep slopes destroys your knees. I loved this part because walking along the ridge had a great view. Overall, lovely hike. Good variety of shady forest and mountainous views. Not buggy at all. Some people, but not a problem.

Fun trail , meanders side to side, incline, decline. Streams, boulders, forest vibe. Lit treasure trove of nature. My group really like it!

Great trail with shadow for the first few miles, lots of bikers. Parking spot available in the elementary schools. Snakes and mountain lions. We took the extra miles to Potato hills and ended up 17 miles total.

Solid trail for a nice and relaxed trail run with a gradual incline. It’s long but not as strenuous as going up in the mountains. Like others have said, you park at Oak Mesa Elementary School and walk through a neighborhood to get to the trail. I like that most of it is very wooded and offers a lot of shade unlike most trails in the area. There are a couple spots where you have to go over shallow water, but there are enough rocks in the water that you can walk on to get to the other side if you don’t want to get your feet wet. Watch out for bikers, there are a lot of them.

Went here for a family hike with our little dog. Very easy route for kids 10 years and under. Went mountain bike here with my MTB. It’s an easy trail. Lots of shades. Parking is very odd because you park at a school and walk/bike through a neighborhood to get to the trail.

I would recommend this to someone who is in shape and ready for a workout . Great view at the top of the peak about 5.5 miles in .Going up was definitely intense and the ride down and was very thrilling be safe and use your brakes .

We started at Silver Spur Trail to Marshall Canyon To Cobolt Canyon and back. Took us 3 hours for a little over 6 miles. I would rate this segment as moderate as quite a few up and downs especially at backend. Marshall Canyon was primarily shaded, the rest was in full sun. Lots of mountain bikers in Marshall Canyon. Saw a bobcat. Beautiful hike, great views. We parked along road by Equestrian area and camps.

Nice, long trail. it days heavily trafficked but would say it was more moderate (Sunday morning to midday). There are sections that the path is quite slim, so when mountain bikers pass you need to be careful, but not really an issue. Passerby (hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders alike) were quite friendly. If you're looking for a long distance hike with gradual incline, this would be the one for you.

it's a nice trail for trail running. The start point begins at the parking lot of a public park and then leads thru some homes and then to the start of the trail. it's very nice, a lot of trees for the first few miles then the trail goes out into the open of the mountains. there was a lot of mountain bikers, you have to be careful when going thru narrow paths as the bikers could hit you. overall it's a nice trail.
