All the hikes at the oak canyon nature center are fairly easy, and kid-friendly. Definitely grab a map to keep track of all the different trails that you can do since most are short and easy. Some are shaded, some are in the sun. Be respectful of private property owners in the surrounding areas.

Great place for family hiking!!! I took my siblings and grandma up here and the views were great and the trails were fun but easy for everyone to keep up!

Beautiful mostly shaded hike you can make short or long. Saw some adorable ducks, a hawk and other birds. Would be great for hiking with small kids as there’s a nice play area near the nature center.

Pretty trail with lots of shade. well kept. Pretty easy, but there are some stairs and a few easy hills. I often do the trail a few times to make the hike longer.

This is a real easy hike. It will be a mix of sun and shade for this trial. A portion of this hike will be up on a hill. On that trail you'll come across a split, one trail that will take you over to a 1.7 mile loop that goes around a reservoir and the other will take you back down to the nature center. This is probably an easy 1-2 hours hike.

honestly, this is what trails aspire to be. multiple connected trails and multiple high view points, rest points, goes from easy to moderate and depending how active you are.. could be harder rising in elevation. I hike quite some bit & this is a cute and fun hike! Be safe on the hills!

Great for easy to moderate walking depending on the trail you take. Not supposed to have dogs here but people do it anyway. My kids had a blast catching lizards here and the nature center has great birthday parties. Beautiful outdoor venue for weddings!

an easy hike, I took my grandkids ages 3,4,5 and they hiked all the way to the top through the cactus garden. It's a fun hike for the family.

I wanted to take my kids on a nice little hike and found this gem. It's a great place for children and has lots of shade. We did the whole loop trail I believe was called stream trail and blue bird, it was the whole loop. The kids got tired butane it to the end and there was a nice little stream and animal statutes.

Really nice manicured trails, very naturey, if that's even a word. Went at 7am, this summer season just happened to be very humid, with the stream there were a lot of mosquitoes and flies, that kept swarming around us. When we got out of the trees and on road runner trail it was nice. All the trails just kinda of run into each other.

I loved this hike. It's a beautiful scenery as you hike a long the way. It was all about nature but also has a guided path. I didn't use a map or anything and enjoyed finding my own way.

This is a very family friendly trail.
There are many different paths to explore, especially with young children or if you just want to spend some time relaxing with a friend. Spend as much time as you want exploring all the short trials.

Take the Roadrunner Trail if you want a bit more of a challenge (and the longest walk) as it will give you the best views from higher up. At the top of Roadrunner you will see a path that leads to the reservoir loop. We used this to go jogging (1.7 miles) before retuning to the rest of the nature walk.

Stick to the lower creekside trails for shade and kids. No pets allowed. Kids will enjoy the Nature Center, which is like a miniature natural history exhibit with a few interactive activities. Great for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to conduct troop activities.

I'm new to nature trail walking and this one is a great starter for me. Close to my home. Will go again.
