most definitely not for strollers! all the trails arw narrow and many of them are very eroded. Again, there is minimal to no signage. it does offer more shade than the Rice Tanch trail though.

This was a decent trail, but I found a few things wrong with it. The trails themselves are confusing and not clearly marked. you won't get lost, but it may be a bit frustrating. Definitely not not for someone with a time limit. There is very little to no shade. Bring a hat and lots of water! The last thing is that I push a stroller. There are times when it is very dificult to push it because they dumped a bunch of fine sand on the trail. Just stick to the edge and you'll be fine and get a cardio. Most of the trail is also really rocky so if your kid does not like off-roading, stick to the really easy fit trail which starts across from the playground.

Trailhead to the left once you enter the first parking lot. Took the Blue trail and there were several mild inclines along the way. Overall it was a pleasant hike, but I unknowingly took a few outside trails and found myself exiting into residential neighborhoods. :/

very easy walking trails. Great for elderly, children, dogs etc... flat and mostly packed dirt. Not much in the way of views on this side.

Love this trail! You can make it short or keep going further back to prolong the hike. Not hard for kids. Also fun for kids to see the frogs and lizards out there.

Fine for just walking. Very boring. Nothing to see. You will not get exercise unless you sprint the whole thing and throw in a couple burpies.

I do this trail at least once a week. It's easy enough to take children but, still gets your heart rate up and it's beautiful.
