It's a short hike with extra loops if you want to add distance. Very dry and hot in the summer, nearly empty, clean and quiet. I saw rabbits, squirrels, lizards and heard coyote in the distance. I avoid Bellman and Turnbull because of the sun/heat and this trail is a decent alternative.

For a quick hike this place is great. The trail is all fire-road and does not have many challenging spots. I went during the week and it was hardly busy.

It's a nice spot with ample parking. I don't like that some parts of the trail are narrow and other parts not flat so it adds uneven pressure on your feet. Trail isn't as clearly marked as others. Watch for mountain bikers!

Nice spot to picnic.

We have been there three times in the last month. It is not closed. It is a pretty trail with some steep inclines.

Not too challenging, but nice if you are feeling like a quick and easy hike.

It's not too bad, for my fibromyalgia.. it has gorgeous amounts of flora, a couple steep slopes but no slips!

This is a fun little trail. Very kid friendly. I have a 3 year old and a 6 year old and they love it. It has enough uphill to make it challenging, but not to tje point where it drains you. It is beautiful and has a nice view once you reach the top.

Good short weeknight hike. If you get to the top and you see a gate, fencing you off from the housing track, don't take the stairs. Unless you like to dangerously....cause they end & you end up scaling down the side of the hill.
