Working on elevation gain and love this trail! Some shady parts, pretty rocky, well trafficed so you’re not always alone. Bikers ride through to so keep in the lookout going up and down.

Great trail however it’s not 16.1 miles it’s barely 14, so if you need to be tracking certain mileage for training you’re going to need to add on a mile before and after. It might be good to start a mile out because the initial Hill is very steep and it would be good to get a warm up if you are running.

Good hike to get away from the city that is not too far.

Nice moderate trail with elevations and shady areas. Lots of different trail options to make your hike as short or long as you prefer. Dogs on leash allowed, most people are friendly.

Where I began I parked in a neighborhood and walked to the entrance. Kind of stumbled on this trail with my dog and kept going up. It was a decent climb but not too strenuous. Lots of options to circle back if you feel you've had enough of the climb. Friendly people and good shade in some parts.

Lots of options at this park. Not strenuous, but lots of opportunities to go for longer or shorten trail distance.

pretty quiet on a Saturday afternoon, wide open trail, good for the dog (on a leash) and any encounters with folks on a bike (which was relatively few and far between), a handful of shady spots to tuck away from the sun.

enjoyable hike - some nice views. as the weather warms and the hills turn brown it may not be quite as enjoyable but I'm sure it would still be worth it.
